Summer storm brings down power lines in Saskatchewan, hail in Alberta

Severe weather in Saskatchewan brought down power lines overnight and generated lightning that may have sparked a small fire in a Saskatoon home.

Fire crews say they found smoke coming from the attic of the house and all three people inside got out safely.

The storm toppled power lines from a damaged high-voltage transmission tower northwest of the city near the community of Harris.

Other electricity outages were reported in several areas of the province.

In southern Alberta, hail the size of golf balls rained down on the Airdrie region and smashed windows in about a dozen cars at a shopping mall just south of the city.

Wind was the big problem in nearby Calgary where some areas lost power and a car was crushed by a fallen tree.
