Global News

CALGARY – Officials say no damage was caused by a small fire at the Calgary International Airport on Monday.

An auxiliary power unit located outside of the terminal caught fire around 4 a.m.

The power units are used to provide power to a stationary aircraft.

Crews used a small towing device called a ‘tug’ to move the burning power unit away from the airplane it was powering.

Firefighters then extinguished the blaze using a mixture of form and water.

Officials say no one was injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
