Crews Respond to Mutiple House Fire in Monterey Park

The Calgary Fire Department responded to reports of a house fire just after 1:00 pm today. When crews arrived, one home was fully involved. Houses on either side were also involved, and received severe damage. Crews worked to bring the homes on either side of the source home under control, and then attacked the initial house that was on fire. CPS assisted in evacuating 16-20 people from surrounding homes. In total, five homes were affected, three of them will not be inhabitable.

Due to the extreme heat today, crews were quickly rotated to provide fluids and monitoring. No injuries have been reported. Crews will remain on scene with the investigator throughout the night.
