Calgary Fire Department extinguishes duplex fire in the North West





At approximately 6:15 this evening, the Calgary Fire Department was called to the 2800 block of 14 St NW for reports of a house fire. Arriving crews found a single story duplex with thick grey smoke venting from a front door. Crews immediately entered the structure to locate the fire. A fire was located in the basement and quickly extinguished. Firefighters searched the unit for possible victims but thankfully no one was home at the time of the fire. The fire caused significant damage in the unit of origin but the neighboring suite was unaffected. Firefighters later learned that a neighbor had returned home, discovered the smoke, and called 911. There were no reports of injury. Investigators are on scene. Traffic in the area is unaffected at this time.
