Firefighters dealt with two residential fires Saturday night and Sunday morning.

The first broke out just after 7 p.m. Friday at 2484 Cedarwood Dr. in Alta Vista. It started in the kitchen on the second floor of a three-story row house, and was contained there.

No one was home at the time, but a dog was found in a crate on the second floor. It had been exposed to heavy smoke and heat, and was taken to an animal hospital by Ottawa police, the fire department said.

The couple living there and their small child have been temporarily displaced and are staying with family. Damage to the building and its contents is estimated at about $115,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The second fire started just before 1 a.m. Sunday at 1530 Weyburn St. in the east end. It started outside in a wood pile, and was spreading to the roof and attic of the home when firefighters arrived.

The flames were brought under control by 1:30 a.m. and no one was injured.

The two people living at the home will be temporarily displaced, firefighters said. Damage to the building and its contents is estimated at about $200,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
