Three children and their 14-year-old babysitter escaped a burning home uninjured in the RM of Coldwell on Tuesday.
The blaze broke out at about 9:30 a.m., causing extensive damage to the home, which appeared to be undergoing exterior renovations.
RCMP say the quick action of the babysitter to evacuate the eight, nine and 10-year-old children and then call 911 prevented injuries.
A damage estimate isn’t yet available, but the home is considered a complete loss.
Police are continuing to investigate.
