"I was driving the kids to school and a buddy in the house phoned me and said the guest house was on fire," he said.

"It looks like it started there in the middle, though, somehow. It must have been electrical, who knows, eh?"

At about 9:30 a.m. CST, firefighters were called to the property. Heavy smoke could be seen for several kilometres.

Crews responded from Saskatoon, Martensville and Warman. It took just under an hour to get the fire under control. There were no injuries, and there's no estimate on damages.
