Sources confirmed that the body had been recovered from the burnt home after two explosive explosions exploded on Sunday morning.
The police are still investigating the cause of the fire, but death is not considered suspicious.
Dozens of 911 calls around 4:20 am report a "loud bang" in the Douglas Glen Close S.E. block, the fire department said in a statement.
One caller said they heard a "loud sound, broken glass, and then the flames visible from the second floor of the family house."
When the fire crews arrived, they found a house that was completely flooded with flame and the fire spread to neighboring residences.
The fire service called for a second alarm of additional resources to fight the fire, aggressively attacking the source of fire in combating spreading flames both inside and outside neighboring houses.
Home of Denise Sullivan leans on the fire. She said she woke up on a "big, huge bang like an explosion on Sunday morning".
"It literally shook the whole area, I thought someone had hit my house with a car or something," she said.
"When I looked out of the window in the bedroom, I saw flames. The first house was in the field for three minutes or less."
Five houses were evacuated in a fire, but the department said that "extreme damage to the source house" prevents firefighters from asking for housing for every home during a fire.
Carol Henke, CFD's Public Information Officer, said he believed the owner of the house and the tenant had lived in a ruined house, but could not confirm whether someone was in.
"I know the police are helping to contact homeowners and my understanding is that there is a tenant who lives down there," Henke said.
The Calgary Transit bus was on the scene to evacuate the inhabitants warm while the crews fought the fire.
One neighboring house suffered heavy damage due to an explosion and subsequent fire, said the department, while damage to other households includes broken windows and molten siding.
Fire investigators are in place to find out the origin of the explosion, and Henke said that the amount of damage and weather conditions will force crews to use special equipment before they can search for the wreck.
Any witnesses who have information, photos or video about the incident before the crew's arrival are asked to send an email to [email protected]
