Kitchen in Cougar Ridge gutted by afternoon fire





Shortly before 1:30 this afternoon the Calgary Fire Department responded to Cougar Ridge Crescent SW for a reported building fire.  Arriving crews found a 2 story, single family residence, with visible flames on the exterior of the home.  Fire crews entered the home to attack the fire and search for possible occupants.  Thankfully, no one was home at the time. The fire was located in the kitchen of the home and quickly extinguished by firefighters.  Fire was contained to the kitchen area but significant smoke damage will force the family, of five, to relocate until repairs have been completed.  Fire Investigators are on scene. Traffic in the area in unaffected at this time.
