Multiple homes evacuated after garage fire spreads near Bow Trail and 37th St. S.W.
CALGARY -- The Calgary Fire Department battled a garage fire overnight that spread to two homes in the southwest community of Spruce Cliff.
Crews arrived at 12:30 a.m. Thursday to see large flames and tall plumes of smoke.
Officials say flames broke out in the detached garage of the home on the northeast corner of Bow Trail and 37th Street S.W.
All three residents of that home evacuated safely — a mother and son who lived upstairs and an adult male from the unit below.
However one adult man from a neighbouring home where the fire spread to suffered minor burns and was treated by EMS on scene.
No other injuries were reported.
Firefighters say they worked to keep the fire from spreading to other homes and evacuated the surrounding homes.
The Calgary Fire Department is asking for anyone who may have photos or video to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Traffic is flowing on Bow Trail, however drivers headed north on 37th Street should pass carefully by fire department vehicles, which are expected to remain on scene Thursday morning.
