CALGARY (660 NEWS) – One person is in critical condition after a fire in Oakridge Tuesday night.

Firefighters responded to the call around 8:30 p.m. on Oakland Way S.W. and found a detached garage fully engulfed in flames.

One person was treated on-site before being taken to hospital in critical condition.

A firefighter also received minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Fire crews also responded to a house fire on Shawnee Crescent S.W. early Wednesday morning around 4:00.

That blaze also started in the garage but crews were able to contain it before it spread.

An investigation into the cause of both fires continues.
