A house fire in Regina's Glencairn neighbourhood has displaced six people.

Firefighters were called to the home on Cannon Street, just north of Dewdney Avenue E., at 10:35 a.m. CST on Thursday, the fire department said in a tweet Thursday afternoon.

The blaze was contained to one room but there was significant smoke damage, the department said.

The residents are receiving help from the mobile crisis services.

No injuries were reported, and two dogs and one cat were also safely taken out of the home.

A spokesperson for the fire department said Friday that the fire was unintentional. Items were left on a stove and a burner was accidentally turned on.
