Fire Engulfs Home in Sage Creek, Police Arrest Suspects

Three suspects are in police custody following a fire in the new development of Sage Creek Sunday night.

Flames engulfed a home currently under construction on Blue Sun Drive at around 10:15 p.m.

Witnesses report flames reached over 20 feet as at least six fire trucks worked to extinguish the fire.

Sage Creek is located just off Lagimodiere Boulevard south of Bishop Grandin.

The area is notorious for having one of the slowest emergency response times in the city. In July, a new fire paramedic station was unveiled for the neighbourhood. Construction has yet to begin.

The Arson Strike Force is investigating.

UPDATE: Monday, August 16 — Police say two 18-year-old men and a 17-year-old male youth are facing charges, including break and enter. Damage is estimated at $200,000. No one was injured in the blaze.

The below shot was taken Monday afternoon.
