A house in South Walkerville caught fire twice in one day and investigators are trying to figure out why.

Firefighters were first called to a house in the 2200 block of Parent around 8am and found smoke coming from the top of the building.

Fire crews stretched hoses into the house and began to fight the blaze which was in the attic.

Responders had the fire under control within minutes.

One person suffered minor injuries.

After the blaze was out, firefighters used fans to remove smoke from the home.

Fire investigators say the cause of the fire was electrical wiring in the attic. The fire caused around $40,000 in damages.

Then this evening around 8pm, firefighters were called back to the same house and found flames coming out of the roof.

After fighting the blaze for several minutes, the fire was brought under control.

Fire officials say both fires caused a combined $80,000 in damages to the home.

The cause of the second blaze is still under investigation.
