Today at around 5 pm the Airdrie Fire Department (AFD) responded to an apartment fire at Canals Crossing.

The fire department responded to a four-story apartment building where a fire had occurred in one of the suites on the top floor. The fire was extinguished prior to the arrival of the AFD crews by the building’s sprinkler system.

Residents of the building had evacuated safely and nobody was injured but several units were heavily damaged due to water from the sprinklers.

An investigation will be conducted by the Fire Prevention Bureau.

More information will be provided when made available.
