Firefighters have spent most of the morning battling a fire in the city’s Luxton neighbourhood.

They also say children were in the home. At this time there are no apparent injuries and streets in the area a blocked off.
A neighbour tells 680 CJOB you couldn’t miss the fire.
“They were really high, I could see the flames shooting from the top of the house.”
It’s not known how the fire began.
