NORTHERN Canada's Calm Air Cargo warehouse at the Churchill Airport was engulfed in flames in what's believed to have been an electrical fire, according to the chief of the Churchill Volunteer Fire Department, reported CTV News.

Fire chief EJ MacCuaig, who works at the airport, said around 8am a Calm Air cargo worker knocked on his door to inform him about the fire. Chief MacCuaig then went into town to get the volunteer fire department, which were on scene within 10-12 minutes.



The fire chief said upon initial inspection he found flames coming from a shed attached to the warehouse. Crews began to fight the flames on the building's exterior and then breached the shed, only to find that's not where the fire originated. Then the fire started to spread inside the warehouse itself.



'My belief is that the attic caught on fire and that was building while we were initially attacking the exterior of the building,' he said.



The fire chief said they continued to try to find the origin of the fire, but couldn't, so he pulled his fire-fighters back to reassess and within three to four minutes the entire building was engulfed in flames.
