You may have seen the thick, black smoke billowing into the air north of the Yellowhead, at 118th avenue and 28th Street.
It took up to 60 firefighters less than two hours to bring the two-alarm fire under control. Fire Rescue's Holly Budd says they got the call at around 4:30pm.
"Crews were on scene shortly after. When they arrived there were flames shooting through the roof and so a second alarm was quickly called."
