Massive blaze in Calgary leaves hundreds homeless
Firefighter injured in condominum inferno

CALGARY — Hundreds of people are homeless after a massive fire destroyed much of a four-story condominium complex in southwest Calgary.
The blaze at a 159-unit building on Millrise Drive, sent massive, dark grey clouds of smoke into the sky Thursday.
One firefighter was injured and taken to Rockyview Hospital, where he was in stable condition.
Deputy Fire Chief Len McCharles said the fire appears to have started on a balcony and when crews arrived about 12:15 p.m., it had spread into two suites, crawling its way up into the attic space where it quickly spread.
McCharles said it’s too early to tell the extent of the damage, which appeared to be mainly confined to the top floor, noting water damage to some suites untouched by fire may be extensive.
