Two young teens were pulled from a house fire, with a large contingent of emergency crews responding to a house fire at 9:27 p.m. at 17808 93 St. on Sunday.

Edmonton Fire Rescue Services Deputy Chief Scott MacDonald said two young teenagers were rushed to hospital after an emergency crew performed CPR.

“It’s not looking good,” he said.

The fire started in the kitchen and was contained there, but two teenage children were extracated from the upstairs.

“They both were getting CPR at the time,” MacDonald said.

The father was treated for carbon monoxide poisoning at the scene, while the mother escaped unharmed.

Up to a dozen emergency response vehicles were on the street in the Lago Lindo neighbourhood east of 97 Street and south of Anthony Henday Drive.

Fire Rescue Services and Emergency Medical Services paramedics were later joined by Edmonton Police Service officers.

One firefighter had a rolled ankle. Fire crews arrived on scene at 9:32 p.m. and fire was brought under control at 9:52 p.m., MacDonald said. 

“It was a very good job by the crews; they worked very hard to get people out,” MacDonald said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
