Red Deer Emergency Services (RDES) are investigating after a fire engulfed multiple homes in the Lancaster neighbourhood late Friday evening.

RDES responded to a fire at two homes on Lancaster Drive at approximately 11 p.m. on Friday, May 1. Residents of both affected homes evacuated safely, although one pet remains unaccounted for at this time.

Emergency Services believe the fire began at 215 Lancaster Drive and spread to the neighbouring home. Both homes were engulfed in flames and two neighbouring properties experienced damage due to heat and exposure.

While the homes are structurally unsafe to enter at this time, Investigators note burn patterns suggest the fire may have originated near the rear of the home at 215 Lancaster Drive.

RDES continue to investigate the incident.
