The Saskatoon Fire Department fought a series of blazes in and out of the city early Monday morning, according to City of Saskatoon news releases.

The first call came at 1:07 a.m., with the report of a fire in the 900 block of Main Street.

The fire department said flames were visible at the rear of the house when the first engines arrived, with fire making its way into the roof.

They had the blaze under control before 2 a.m., the city said, and all occupants of the house got out safely.

An investigator said the fire originated in dumpsters lining the building. The damage is estimated at $150,000.

While firefighters contended with the situation on Main Street, another crew was dealing with a fire in Furdale.

All the occupants of the two-storey home had evacuated when the crew arrived, the city said. An attached three-car garage was engulfed in flames, so the crew on scene called for additional support.
