A home in the northwest neighbourhood of Varsity Estates suffered extensive fire damage in a blaze early Wednesday.
The Calgary Fire Department’s arson unit was called to the 1100 block of Varsity Estates Drive around 3:20 a.m.
A man and a woman inside the home when the fire started managed to escape safely. No injuries were reported.
The fire department tells Global News the home is considered “a total write-off.”
Though firefighters won’t disclose where they believe the fire originated, Calgary Fire said the flames extended through the attic and the roof.
