CALGARY – Investigators are working to determine the cause of a southeast fire that sent thick black smoke climbing into the sky.

Firefighters were called to a building in the 3800 block of 16 Street S.E. just after 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

They used thermal imaging cameras to locate and extinguish a forklift that was burning.

Crews found that radiant heat had caused some additional spot fires in the area, which were extinguished.

Smoke was vented out of the building using high volume fans.

Investigators believe some parts of the building may have suffered structural damage.

No injuries were reported.
