Calgary home significantly damaged in early morning fire

CALGARY — Officials say no one was injured when a home in northwest Calgary caught fire early Saturday.

Crews were called to the scene, in the 400 block of 20 Avenue N.W., at about 5 a.m. for reports of a fire.

When they arrived, they found a two-storey, detached home fully involved with smoke and flames.

As crews began to attack the blaze, they determined that all the occupants of the home had gotten out safely. Firefighters then focused on extinguishing the blaze and protecting the adjacent homes.

EMS, as well as Calgary police, were dispatched to the scene to assist.

ENMAX also responded to the incident to take care of a fallen power line behind the home.
