Late night fire destroys northeast garage, damages vehicles including boat

CALGARY — A fire in the northeast neighbourhood of Temple reduced a detached garage to a charred frame and damaged three vehicles including a boat.

Emergency crews responded to a home in the 6800 block of Temple Drive N.E. shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday following reports of a fire.

Firefighters encountered a double detached garage fully engulfed in flames. After ensuring no one was in the garage, efforts were made to protect the home on the property.

The fire was extinguished but the garage was irreparable as well as a vehicle that had been parked inside. A second vehicle that had been parked nearby, a boat and the exterior of the home were damaged by the blaze.

No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Anyone who witnessed the fire or took photos of the scene is asked to email the Calgary Fire Department.
