A four-story apartment building caught fire on June 1 at 5 p.m. in Canals Crossing, located in southwest Airdrie. No injuries have been reported at this time.

Although no details have been released yet about what caused the fire, a press release from the City of Airdrie stated the fire originated in one suite and resulted in an emergency evacuation of the building. 

The building's sprinkler system extinguished the fire before Airdrie Fire Department crews arrived on the scene. However, units in the building have been severely damaged by the water from the sprinkler system. 

The Crossfield Fire Department provided standby resources to the nine Airdrie Fire Department firefighters who were deployed to the call. 

The Fire Prevention Bureau will be conducting an investigation to discover the cause of the fire, according to the City's press release.
