250 residents forced from Calgary apartment building due to parkade fire

The Calgary Fire Department said 250 residents were forced from their Victoria Park building after a fire spread in its parkade on Tuesday.

Crews responded to the 29-storey building at 1 Street and 13 Avenue S.E. for reports of smoke at around 9:20 p.m.

The CFD said three vehicles burned in the blaze, and crews worked to ventilate the building and parkade before letting residents back inside.
