No one was hurt in a minor fire that broke out in a home at 727 Lipton Street on Christmas Eve.
The blaze began at about 8:45 p.m. of the two-storey home, sending smoke billowing out from both levels.
Damage — which is said to be mostly smoke- and water-related — is estimated at $15,000.
The investigation into the cause is ongoing.
