An early morning fire Thursday in an Anders on the Lake home caused an estimated $100,000 damage.

RCMP responding to an intruder alarm spotted the blaze and called Red Deer Emergency Services about 1:50 a.m.

Seventeen fire-medics from three stations were dispatched to the fire and were on scene within six minutes. The fire at 37 Archer Drive was brought under control at 2:09 a.m., said fire investigator Al Robichaud.

The owner and her daughter were not at home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

Fire damage was contained in the kitchen area. “Throughout the house, it’s mostly smoke and water damage,” he said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
