CALGARY – The Calgary Fire Department says four homes were destroyed by a blaze in the northwest community of Kincora on Tuesday.
Crews were called to the 300 block of Kincora Drive N.W. shortly before 2 a.m.
When they arrived, firefighters found two homes engulfed in flames.
“The two houses were fully involved, the fire was infringing on a third,” Acting Battalion Chief Fred Rogi said. “The crews had to put up with strong winds, which caused the fire to extend to the third and fourth house.”
Rogi added the homes involved were “fairly close together.”
Enmax and ATCO Gas were called to the scene to shut off utilities to the damaged homes.
A total of 30 firefighters and 11 apparatus responded to the fire
