Calgary Fire Department Responds to Condo Fire

At approximately 8:30 this evening the Calgary Fire Department responded to a 911 call for a house fire in the 3100 block of 66 avenue southwest. On arrival crews entered the attached multi-family occupancy and were met with smoke and flame. Crews quickly attacked the fire and brought it under control, keeping the fire contained to one room and contents.

Firefighters were able to vent the smoke from the fire and prevent damage to adjacent attached units. The dwelling was searched for additional occupants, and none were found. There were no injuries on scene, and crews will continue on site for the next several hours. Calgary Police and AHS paramedics assisted with traffic, perimeter control and assessing occupants. The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.

The Calgary Fire department reminds citizens of the importance of working smoke alarms, and that November 1st to 7th is carbon monoxide (CO) awareness week. Test your alarms monthly because working CO alarms provide the only warning of dangerous CO gases in your home.
