Calgary Fire Crews Extinguish New Brighton Kitchen Fire





Calgary Fire crews were dispatched to a house fire in the 100 block of Brightondale crescent S.E. shortly after 1:00p.m this afternoon. First arriving crews reported light smoke showing from  the front of a two story single family dwelling and began a rapid investigation into cause. The rapid size up revealed a fire in the kitchen area of the home and the fire was quickly brought under control and subsequently extinguished. All occupants were accounted for and no injuries were reported. Apparently the home owner was returning home after completing some errands and was met with smoke when they opened the front door. They subsequently called 911 and reported the fire. Fire investigators are on scene and are in the initial phase of their investigation.
