One detached garage was completely destroyed and two others were badly damaged after a large fire in the northeast community of Marlborough.

Fire crews were called to a garage fire around 4:20 Wednesday afternoon in the 3900 block of 14 Avenue N.E.

When firefighters arrived, flames had consumed one garage and had spread to two neighbouring garages.

The fire also caused damage to the rear siding of two homes.

In a press release, the Calgary Fire Department said, “the radiant heat also caused the siding on two garages across the back alley to melt.”

No injuries were reported and there’s still no word on the cause.

Investigators said it’s still unclear if the fire has any connection to other recent fires in the same neighbourhood.
