Two cars went up in flames in Calgary's southwest on Saturday night. 

Fire crews were called to the 2800 block of Oakmoor Crescent just before 9 p.m. where a GMC truck was on fire.

About 15 minutes later they received another call, this time for a burning SAAB sedan in the 100 block of Oaklawn Place — only a few hundred yards away from the initial vehicle fire. 

No one was injured in either fire and there are no estimates on the extent of the damage at this time. 

The Calgary Fire Department is investigating the two incidents and hasn't said whether the fires are related.
