Calgary firefighters battling 2-alarm blaze in southeast condo complex

Calgary firefighters are on the scene of a two-alarm fire in the southeast neighbourhood of Midnapore.

The Calgary Fire Department received multiple reports at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, of smoke and flames visible from a balcony in a low-rise condo building.

Because of the size of the building and the volume of smoke, the incident was upgraded to a second alarm.
