Fire has destroyed two homes in north Edmonton.

Fire officials say they were called to the blaze near 84th Street and 173rd Avenue just before 1 a.m. Sunday when someone driving by the homes noticed smoke.

Looking for the source of the smoke, the driver found the two homes on fire, called the fire department and woke up the sleeping residents within the two buildings.

No one was hurt in the fire, which caused an estimated $900,000 in damages.

Fire investigators are on the scene today to determine what sparked the flames.
