Three families are unable to return to their homes after a fire Saturday night in the community of Monterey Park.

The fire started just before 8 p.m. at a house in the 7200 block of Laguna Way NE.

Calgary Fire said there were 10 people inside the home at the time. All of them made it out safely before crews arrived.

Firefighters said high winds caused the fire to spread to homes on both sides — as well as to a car.

Paramedics assessed two people at the scene, but no one was taken to hospital, and no injuries were reported.

In total, three homes were destroyed and cannot be reoccupied in the near future.

Residents displaced by the fire have all found alternate places to stay for the time being.
