Fire tears through Calgary strip mall

Share

Calgary fire crews are at the scene of a blaze in a strip mall on Thursday morning.

At about 6:30 a.m., the Calgary Fire Department responded to a block of businesses along Macleod Trail at 94 Avenue S.E.

When CTV News arrived at the scene, flames could be seen coming from the roof of a Bulk Barn store while smoke poured from the entrance to the business.

No one was found inside the business and no one else was injured, officials said.

Fire crews and police have blocked off a number of roads in the area, including a number of lanes on northbound Macleod Trail.

Those closures have since been cleared.

The CFD said the fire is believed to have started inside the business and burned its way to the roof and into the parapet, an extension of the wall and roof.

Neighbouring businesses have smoke damage, but all of the fire damage is limited to the business of origin.

Fire officials believe approximately 20,000 litres of water was used to put out this fire.

Anybody who has photos, video or any information about this fire is please asked to send it to piofire@calgary.ca.
