Calgary Fire Department fights house fire in the NW neighborhood of Mount Pleasant

At approximately 3:15 this morning, the Calgary Fire Department was called to the 4 ST and 30 AVE NW for reports of a building fire. Firefighters arrived to find a 2 story infill home fully engulfed in flames. Fire crews immediately initiated an aggressive exterior fire attack focusing all efforts on bringing the fire under control. The fire was extinguished but, unfortunately, the house is a total loss. The house, which was under construction, could not immediately be searched by fire crews due to collapsing structural components. At this time, there were no reports of injury. No other buildings or vehicles sustained any fire related damage. A fire investigator is currently on scene. Traffic in the area is unaffected at this time.
