Fire Engulfs Apartment Complex in Yorkton

An apartment complex in Yorkton was fully engulfed in flames in smoke when fire fighters were called out early this morning.

The building is located at Ashwood and Riverview.  Early reports indicate crews were called out last night to the same location, and though they had the fire knocked out.

Fire chief Trevor Morrissey says there are indications, as yet unconfirmed, that someone broke into one of the units and started the 2nd blaze. Residents in the area were being asked by the fire department to conserve water to ensure there’s enough pressure in the system to battle the fire.

No word on injuries.
