Calgary crews put out 2 fires on sweltering day – Calgary


As temperatures scorched at around 35 C on Wednesday, the Calgary Fire Department responded to two blazes within an hour.

Crews were met with heavy smoke and flames when they arrived at the scene of a house fire in the 3000 block of Radcliffe Drive S.E. after 5 p.m.

One adult was taken to hospital due to smoke inhalation and another was assessed on scene, the CFD said.

Firefighters rescued two lizards and said later Wednesday evening that a missing dog was found dead in the home.

Officials said the damage is “significant.”

At 5:40 p.m., the CFD responded to another fire.

Flames emerged from the second storey of a home in the 200 block of Martinwood Way N.E.

Four adults got out safely before crews arrived — the CFD initially said it was five adults — and there were no injuries.

Crews said there is significant damage to the second floor.

Both fires are under investigation.
