Three Homes in Cougar Ridge Destroyed by Fire

Shortly after 2:00 on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 3, 2023,  multiple calls started coming into 9-1-1 reporting a house on fire on Cougartown Close S.W.  When fire crews arrived on scene, one house was fully involved with flames spreading to the neighbouring house prompting a second alarm for additional resources.  Four residents escaped without injuries, sadly however, two dogs are unaccounted for.  

Three homes were completely destroyed and a  fourth home had minor heat damage to the siding.  In total, six people are displaced from three homes. Other residents who were evacuated as a precaution have been allowed back in. Traffic in the area was disrupted due to  all of the emergency vehicles. CPS officers assisted with traffic management.
