Woman found in the basement of the duplex
CFD crews called to Calgary duplex fire Thursday evening.
A woman in her 40′s is dead after a house fire in northwest Calgary on Thursday evening.
CFD crews were called to the Calgary duplex fire, located in the 4300 block of Bowness Road N.W., at about 11 p.m.
When crews first arrived at the scene, there was no noticeable evidence of a fire at the home. There was no smoke or flames coming from the home. Crews quickly checked the house over and they did find the fire inside one of the two residences.
Firefighters entered the home and after a quick search, found the unconscious woman in the basement. She was taken out of the home and turned over to EMS crews. Sadly, she could not be revived.
The occupants of the adjacent duplex unit were able to escape the blaze and no one from that home was injured.
The fire was contained to the room of origin and the duplex suffered smoke damage. Crews used ventilation fans to get the smoke out of the home and the fire was extinguished.
The home was equipped with a functioning smoke detector.
The cause of the fire is under investigation and the arson unit has been called in, which is standard practice in the event of a fatality in a fire.
