Fire crews spent several hours fighting a major blaze in Regina early Thursday morning, after a home in the city's North Central neighbourhood went up in flames.
Officials told CBC News the call came in at about 3:30 a.m. CST, reporting a fire at a home near the corner of Retallack Street and 8th Ave.
"The flames were licking out of just about every window and door on the building," as firefighters pulled up, according to Gerard Kay with the Regina fire department.
It took firefighters more than an hour to get the blaze under control.
Kay told CBC News there are definite signs pointing to the fire as being suspicious . "The fire patterns themselves," he noted, adding, "there is a gasoline can present."
Kay also said the size of the blaze could be an indication of foul play.
Fire crews told CBC there was no one in the home when they arrived.
People living in an adjacent house was evacuated at the height of the blaze.
There was no immediate estimate of the damage, but the home was left charred.
