Firefighters douse Gitzel blaze
Wednesday, February 17, 2010 - 4:23 PM
A fire in a housing unit on Gitzel street took the fire department less than 20 minutes to put out Wednesday afternoon.
Yellowknife Fire Chief Darcy Hernblad says they still aren't sure how it started.
"It's too early, at this stage, to tell how the fire started, but when the crews got on scene, it was pretty easy to tell the fire was on the second floor."
Hernblad says no one was injured in the fire, though they are still trying to find a cat in the unit.
He adds, neighbouring units have been evacuated until firefighters are confident the flames won't re-ignite.
