Calgary Fire Department Crews Respond To Two Alarm Structure Fire in Sunnyside

At approximately 12:45 am this morning, Calgary Fire Department (CFD) crews responded to reports of a structure fire in the 1100 block of Gladstone Road NW. A second alarm was immediately called to ensure adequate resources on scene.

Upon arrival, fire crews faced significant smoke and visible flame from the interior of a 3 story cinder block commercial building. Firefighters quickly initiated an exterior defensive attack. Two water towers were also set up to assist in fire attack. Damage and fire extension was limited to the one structure.

Reports were that the structure had been vacant for a number of years.

CPS assisted and provided traffic and crowd control at scene. Atco and Enmax were dispatched and ensured there were no hazards relating to services.

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

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
