One person has died in a house fire in the northeast Calgary community of Tuxedo.

Firefighters were called out around 11:30 Saturday night to a home in the 100 block of 25th Avenue.

Upon arrival, crews were faced with a significant amount of smoke and flames showing from the inside, as well as the exterior of a single storey family home.

When firefighters could finally get inside, they discovered the body of one victim.

Another person who managed to escape the flames was treated by paramedics at the scene for smoke inhalation.

The cause of the blaze will be examined by a fire investigator and the Calgary Police Service Arson Unit.
