Crews tackling major fire at condo in downtown Calgary
CALGARY - Fire investigators in Calgary are looking into the cause of a blaze at a construction site in the city's downtown.
Fire department spokeswoman Carol Henke says people noticed flames and smoke coming from the top floor of the four-storey project just before noon Saturday.
Henke says that because the building was still under construction, there were a lot of open areas that allowed oxygen to feed the flames.
The site is located just south of Calgary's downtown core, not far from the Saddledome.
The nearby Talisman Centre recreation complex was briefly evacuated due to the smoke, and streets around the fire were blocked off.
Henke says there were workers at the site when the fire started, but there were no reports of injuries.
