Three homes are significantly damaged after a large fire broke out in the northwest neighbourhood of Sherwood Sunday morning.
The Calgary Fire Department said residents from those homes will not be able to return home for an unknown amount of time.
Just after midnight Sunday, Calgary firefighters were called out to the 100 block of Sherwood Crescent N.W. for a fully involved 2-story residential home that had flames shooting out from the home, threatening neighbouring houses. A second alarm was called to make sure there were enough resources on scene, Calgary Fire said in a statement.
“Firefighters quickly initiated an aggressive exterior attack with apparatus deck guns and hand lines. Two water towers were also set up to assist in fire attack. Three homes suffered significant damage and fire extension,” read the statement.
Residents from the homes were able to get out safely and there were no injuries reported.
Calgary Police helped with evacuations and crowd control.
Fire crews including a Fire Investigator remained on scene as of Sunday morning to make sure there were no flare ups. It’s unclear what caused the fire.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
