CALGARY – Firefighters were called to two separate fires in southern Calgary on Saturday night, but officials say no one was injured in either of the incidents.
The first incident was reported around 6 p.m. in the 3800 block of Bonnybrook Road SE
When the crews arrived, they found smoke and flames from the roof of a one-story shop.
While the building was being evacuated, ladders were used to reach the roof so crews could open it and discover the source of the fire.
It was quickly extinguished, with minor smoke damage inside the building.
About three hours later, the crews were called to a second fire in a building on the 200 block off Center Street S.
Firefighters found smoke in the building and when they climbed the roof they found a fire that had started in the roof.
The crews again cut into the roof of the building to expose the fire and properly put it out.
All residents of this building escaped safely and no one was injured.
The cause of both fires is being investigated.
