MEDICINE HAT, AB - A fire that broke out last week on Chinook Drive started in the carport area of the home.

An investigation has determined the blaze is not suspicious, but the exact cause has yet to be determined.

"We've removed the vehicle from the scene," explained Fire Prevention Officer, Carter Gramlich. "Insurance has an interest in finding the cause of the fire as well. So, we're going to try and work with them to determine exactly why the fire started in the vehicle, but we know that's where it came from and spread to the house afterwards."

Crews were called to the home last Monday around 7 in the morning.

No one was injured or home at the time of the incident.

The fire caused roughly $300,000 worth of damage.
