The Calgary Fire Department said crews had to battle the blaze from outside of the house because of structural damage the fire had caused inside the home.

It’s the second time in a week that Calgary firefighters have responded to a fire at a home under construction.

Crews were called to Drury Avenue Northeast in the community of Bridgeland on Monday after a fire ripped through a house, causing extensive damage.
