Calgary Fire crews are reminding residents about the importance of smoke alarms, after one person died in a house fire in Glendale on Friday night.

Calgary Fire crews arrived at the home on Kelwood Place southwest around 11 p.m, where they encountered heavy smoke and flames coming from the back of the single-storey home.

According to CFD, crews found a man inside the home.

After efforts to resuscitate the man, he was transferred to hospital by AHS but died due to fire related injuries, CFD said.
