When the crew arrived, two residential detached garages and a garbage bin were on fire.

“Live, arching power lines had fallen as a result of the fire,” Saskatoon Fire Department said in a press release. Utility technicians were called to the scene.

The fires were put out within 10 minutes of the first 911 call coming in, say officials.

The garbage bin that was set on fire was “down the alley” from the garages that had been set on fire. A large tree also had to be extinguished after a fire from a garage spread to it.
