An investigation is underway into the cause of a garage fire Wednesday afternoon in southeast Calgary.

At around 2:50 p.m., multiple reports were received of a garage fire, with flames igniting electrical cables in an alley and then spreading to a house on the property.

A second alert was issued due to the amount of dark smoke visible en route, and the fact that it was extremely hot that day.

Emergency services arrived to find a fire in the garage and house, with the flames spreading to the adjacent garage and house.

No one was found in the original house, but an unharmed dog was found in the adjacent property.

The original garage was destroyed, with the house sustaining significant damage. The second house sustained external damage, with the second garage being hit by radiant heat.

Fire investigators are on scene to determine the origin of the fire. Anyone with photos or videos, especially from before firefighters arrived, is asked to email [email protected].
