A fire in Yellowknife has all but destroyed a home in the city's Frame Lake South neighbourhood.

Firefighters spent about an hour battling the blaze. Strong winds made it difficult to control the flames.

Neighbours were nervous about the fire spreading to nearby homes.

A man who lives in the house went into the flames to save his dog, which was inside.

Witnesses say he was treated for smoke inhalation and taken to the hospital. No other injuries have been reported.
