Car fire scorches Regina apartment building

Crews were on the scene of a car fire on the north side of Regina Wednesday morning that caused damage to a nearby apartment building.

The side of the apartment at the corner of Angus Street and 2nd Avenue North was scorched by the flames.

The fire was extinguished around 10 a.m. CST.

Residents of the three-storey building, including a woman named Rhonda who lives on the top level, were rushed out of the building.

"I just woke up and I heard a boom, saw a lot of smoke and was told to leave my place," said Rhonda.

"I thought my place was on fire."

No injuries were reported, but Rhonda said said the whole experience was frightening.

"I was upset. I thought my place was on fire. When all you see is smoke coming off the back end of your - you, you, worry," said Rhonda.

Officials said the fire was kept to the exterior of the building.

The tenants in the top and second floors were allowed back into their homes.

An investigation into the incident is underway.
