Calgary Fire Crews Fight Auburn Bay Garage Fire
At approximately 6:35 in the morning on Tuesday, February 14th, multiple calls were made to 9-1-1- reporting flames coming from a garage located on Auburn Bay Manor South East. Reports from witnesses state that a resident was trying to use an extinguisher to fight the fire but was overwhelmed by the flames. The fire continued to grow and was fueled by some of the contents in the garage.
