A home at #19, 2 Avenue Southeast in High River sustained extensive damage early Saturday evening when it caught fire.
The house is just east of the Danceworks Studio and north, across the alley from Shoppers Drug Mart.
Fire fighters with the High River department were called just after 6 p.m. and were out with a half dozen vehicles.
Fire Chief Cody Zebedee says the cause is unknown at this time.
It appears to have started at the back of the small house.
The owner could be seen outside cuddling a small dog and was too upset to talk about what had happened.
No one in the home was injured.
