Fire Crews Respond to Two Alarm Fire on Ventura Road NE

At approximately 10:20 pm this evening, Calgary Fire Department (CFD) crews responded to Ventura Road NE for reports of a structure fire.

Upon arrival, CFD crews were faced with a significant amount of smoke and flame burning through the roof of the two-story single family home.

Shortly after arriving, a second alarm was struck by CFD to ensure adequate resources on scene.

Crews quickly worked to extinguish the main body of flames as well as protect exposures on either side of the home where the fire originated. A thorough search of all affected residences confirmed that no people were inside, though one cat is missing from the source home.

Two residents from the source home have been displaced and are being assessed and assisted by a fire investigator on scene to determine needs.

The fire is out at this time and the fire investigator is conducting an investigation.

Cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
