St. Vital dual house fires cause almost $1M in damages
Careless smoking believed to be the cause
Fire officials said Saturday a house fire that spread to a neighbouring home on Nichol Avenue in St. Vital caused about $450,000 in damages to each home.
Investigators are blaming the careless disposal of smoking material as the cause.
No injuries were reported.
But firefighters worked in 30 C temperatures to douse the flames.
