Explosion Rocks Calgary's Marlborough Neighbourhood Leaving Serious Injuries and Devastation
At approximately 8:50 on the morning of Monday, March 27th, 2023, a sudden and devastating explosion occurred at a home on Maryvale Way North East. The explosion was felt throughout the neighbourhood and completely destroyed one house. The force from the explosion also damaged and ignited two other neighbouring homes. The number of injured residents is currently at 10. Most of the injured patients are believed to have been from the source house. Patients were transported by EMS to various Calgary hospitals. Fire crews have been unable to access the source home at this time to search for any more patients due to structural instability.
The explosion created a large debris field, several fires and damage to other surrounding houses. Enmax has shut down power to the area and ATCO is working on clamping the natural gas line. Calgary Fire Department Fire Investigators are on the scene and are working closely with CPS Arson Investigators. This is an ever evolving scene and we ask for community members cooperation in avoiding this area .
