Firefighters investigate falling object
Calgary Firefighters were called out on Feb. 16 to a highrise building under construction at 14th Avenue and 1st Street after receiving reports of a falling object.
Upon arrival, firefighters closed a one block area to vehicle and pedestrian traffic to secure the site to investigate.
It was discovered a balcony rail covered by a tarp had blown from an upper floor area to the ground.
Firefighters entered the building to insure the other tarps and railings were secured.
Members of the Building Approval Department were called to the scene, along with construction officials, to assess the structure.
The area will remain closed until it has been determined that nothing further is in danger of falling.
High winds are believed to have been the cause of the incident.
