Three families were unable to return home last night after a large blaze in Monterey Park.

The Calgary Fire Department responded to reports of a house fire in the 7200 block of Laguna Way N.E. at about 8 p.m. Saturday. Heavy smoke poured into the neighbourhood, as crews arrived to find two homes on fire and flames beginning to spread to a third house.

Everyone in the homes had safely escaped when crews arrived, and no one was injured.

“Firefighters quickly set up hose lines to control the fire and keep it contained to the structures already involved,” the fire department said in a news release. “Due to the large volume off smoke and flame, firefighting efforts remained exterior on the initial structures while primary and secondary searches were conducted on the neighbouring homes.”

Just after midnight, firefighters had the blaze under control, but remained on scene looking for hotspots.

Investigators are still searching for a cause.
