Calgary Fire Crews Respond To House Fire in Tuxedo

At approximately 1130 pm this evening, Calgary Fire Department (CFD) crews responded to reports of a house fire on Edmonton Trail and 28th Avenue NE.

Upon arrival, fire crews faced significant smoke and flame from a single family home. Firefighters were able to effectively control the spread of flames and limited damage to the source home. No exposure buildings were damaged.

Impacted residents self-evacuated from the source home as well as from an adjacent home before CFD’s arrival. CPS assisted with evacuees as well as provided traffic and crowd control at scene. Atco and Enmax were dispatched and ensured there were no hazards relating to services. AHS attended the incident but no injuries to civilians or emergency workers were reported.

The source home was significantly damaged and one occupant who is accounted for at this time will require alternate accommodations.

Fire crews including a fire investigator will remain on scene throughout the evening to ensure there is no fire extension and to confirm extinguishment.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
