Calgary Fire Crews Attend Fire in Foothills Industrial Area

Calgary Fire Crews Attend Fire in Foothills Industrial Area

At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, Calgary 911 received a report from a passerby of smoke showing from a building in the 5000 block of 76 Ave SE. The first on scene Calgary Fire Department crews found a two story standalone industrial structure with visible smoke and flames. Fire crews used forcible entry techniques to quickly gain access to the interior of the building. A fire attack team then entered the structure, advancing to the seat of the fire and quickly extinguishing the flames using a combination of foam and water. The fire was contained to the shop area of the business, which was confirmed after crews gained access to the roof checking for fire extension. A thorough search of the building confirmed there were no occupants inside at the time of the incident. Crews remain on scene at this time conducting overhaul and salvation operations as well as assisting the fire investigator.
