Calgary fire crews have had a busy night in the city, dealing with three separate fires.
Currently, firefighters are in the 300 block of 14 Street N.W. dealing with a car fire.
Officials say the vehicle on fire is inside the parkade under the building.
A number of people have been forced out of their building for crews to deal with the fire.
No other details are being released at this time, but we will have more as it develops.
Crews were also called to two other fires overnight, both just a few blocks from one another in the northeast community of Falconridge.
At about 10:15 p.m., crews were called to a small restaurant just off of Falconridge Boulevard N.E.
They spotted light smoke coming from the building and, upon investigation; they found that a fire had been burning inside the kitchen for an unknown period of time before the call was made.
The fire was mostly out by the time crews got there, but they helped clear the scene by extinguishing the rest of the blaze and checking over the rest of the structure for any sign of spread.
Just over an hour later, while crews were still at the scene of the first fire, another call was made for another fire a short distance away, at a home on Fallingworth Court N.E.
When crews got there, they found a fully-involved house fire. Crews quickly contained the fire, keeping it from spreading to adjacent homes and then began to extinguish the fire inside the structure.
The fire was quickly brought under control and put out with only minor damage inflicted to the neighbouring homes.
There is no word on damage to the home of origin in the fire.
Investigators remain on scene at both fires to determine causes. Crews are also at the scene to monitor hotspots.
No one was hurt in either fire.
There is no indication from the CFD that these fires are in any way related.
