Just after noon on Monday, the Olds Fire Department responded to a house fire in the town after a passerby had called 9-1-1.
"A residential two-story home was found to contain a ventilation-limited fire that broke out through the front of the home at the time fire crews arrived. The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire," The Town of Olds stated in a release.
Crews knocked down the fire and made quick entry to extinguish the forward progress of the fire. Smoke and heat damage occurred throughout the structure.
Fire crews responded with two engines, an aerial ladder truck, and a command unit. A total of 12 firefighters were on scene managing the fire.
"There were no injuries to firefighters during and damage estimates have not been made but will be extensive with contents and structure being affected."
The property owners are working with their insurance company and fire investigators to establish a cause of the fire, which is not deemed suspicious.
