A man has died after a Thursday morning fire at a townhouse in southeast Calgary, according to a spokesperson for the city’s fire department.
Firefighters were called to a residence on Pensville Close S.E. just before 7:30 a.m. They found a man inside a room who had sustained burns.
A spokesperson for EMS told Global News the man was taken to Foothills Medical Centre in life-threatening condition.
A Calgary Fire Department spokesperson later confirmed the man died and said his injuries appeared to be related to the fire. The CFD did not say what is believed to have started the fire but noted it was confined to the one room and firefighters were able to get it under control.
