SASKATOON -- A hot plate is responsible for a small garage fire in Saskatoon Saturday evening, according to the Saskatoon Fire Department.

Upon arrival firefighters found black smoke inside the garage and coming from the roof, the fire department said. Firefighters found heat in the walls and used a thermal-imaging camera to find the source.

A fire investigator determined a hot plate was accidentally turned on and damage is estimated at $10,000, the fire department said.
