CALGARY — A fire in the northeast Calgary community of Saddleridge destroyed a home on Thursday afternoon.

Around 1:30 p.m. fire crews were called to the home along 85 Avenue N.E., and en route, large volumes of smoke could be seen coming from the area of the home, which triggered a second alarm to provide more resources in the fight.

Upon arrival, crews found one home to be completely engulfed in flames. Both crews then worked to keep the fire to just the single home.

No injuries were reported.

The Calgary Fire Department is asking anyone who may have information, photos, or videos of the fire prior to their arrival to forward them their way to assist in the investigation.
