An update to information about a house fire at a heritage home in the Hillhurst area of northwest Calgary on Friday night.
Fire crews arrived on the scene to find dark smoke and flames coming from a home on 10A Street NW.
Initial reports said that four people were at the home and escaped the blaze prior to firefighters arriving and there was no working smoke alarms.
But fire crews obtained new information that there was actually no one home at the time and the owners of the house do have and do maintain smoke alarms in the house as well as having fire extinguishers on every level.
The house was previously a bed and breakfast but was currently being rented to three long-term tenants.
The fire caused significant damage to the house and minor damages to neighbouring homes but no one was injured.
