A house in Taradale has been heavily damaged by fire.
Firefighters were called to the home on Taracove Way N.E. just before 11 a.m. Monday and due to the amount of smoke they called in a second alarm for more resources.
Carol Henke, spokesperson for the Calgary Fire Department said when crews arrived, the house was fully engulfed in fire, and the flames were threatening homes next door.
Those homes were evacuated as a precaution and fortunately crews were able to keep the flames from doing any damage to the neighbouring houses.
There is extensive damage to the home where the fire originated.
There are no reports of any injuries.
An investigation is underway.
