Calgary Fire Department Responds to a 2 Alarm Fire in Coach Hill
Just after 2 am this morning, Calgary 911 recieved multiple calls for a house fire in the 6600 block of Coach Hill Rd SW.
The Calgary Fire Department (CFD) was dispatched to the address and found a single family residence fully involved and the exterior of a second house on fire. Crews quickly started a fire attack while checking for occupants of both homes, crews used aerial streams and large volume hose lines to attack the fire and to protect the neighboring homes. All the occupants were able to safely self evacuate from the impacted homes before CFD arrived.
At the time of this report, fire crews are conducting salvage and overhaul work on both homes to ensure the fire is extinguished. Both homes suffered extensive damage and will be uninhabitable, a third home had damage to the exterior. CFD will remain on scene throughout the day to continue this work.
Alberta Health Services are on scene and have assessed some of the residents, but no one was transported. Calgary Police Services were also on scene to assist with safety and control traffic in the area.
Enmax and Atco were called to the scene to assist with shutting down the utilities and making the scene safer for fire crews.
