CANMORE, AB - The aftermath looks like a mini 9/11, but no lives were lost in a blazing inferno that destroyed three luxury condos at Wilderness Ridge at Stewart Creek early Saturday morning.

Canmore Fire/EMS were called to the scene at approximately 1 a.m. on Saturday, April 25 where they found two large, 12 unit structures fully engulfed in flames, with a third structure starting to ignite. The buildings are a block past the roundabout on the road to Stewart Creek Golf Course, in Three Sisters Mountain Village.

“We estimate the damage to be from 20 to 25 million dollars,” Canmore Fire Chief Todd Sikorsky said. “The flames were shooting 250 feet into the air when we first came in. We took a defensive position.”
