No one was injured in a fire in a vacant home on the 800 block of McDermot Avenue, but the city warned drivers to use caution because water used to extinguish the blaze had frozen in the street.
Crews were expected to remain at the scene for hours after the blaze was declared under control around 8:30 p.m.
Both neighbouring houses were evacuated as a precaution. The home is expected to be a write-off.
Crews were to be rotated on and off because of the cold weather.
The city expected to use sand and de-icing agents on the ice that froze on the street.
