Streets in the Beltline neighbourhood were closed Saturday afternoon as crews dealt with an apartment building fire.
Flames and smoke could be seen billowing from the 4th floor balcony of the building near 8 St. and 15 Ave. S.W. around 3:30 p.m.
Fire crews used hoses to attack the flames on the outside while other crews worked to keep the fire from spreading inside.
Aerial ladder trucks were on standby in order to provide an elevated master stream if needed.
The Calgary Fire Department said a number of residents left before crews arrived. Others were told to shelter in place as the spread was contained mostly to the outside.
Calgary EMS said nobody was hurt.
Police were on scene for several hours, helping firefighters check on the building’s residents and managing traffic in the area.
Several suites suffered water and smoke damage, along with some of the outside walls.
Building management and a restoration company were on scene as well, working with those displaced by the fire.
Investigators were still trying to determine the cause Saturday evening.
