Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service responds to fires on Burrows Avenue and Hoka Street
Released: 10:09 a.m.
Winnipeg, MB – At 11:19 p.m. on November 24, 2020, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responded to reports of a fire in a two-storey, single family home in the 500 block of Burrows Avenue.
When crews arrived on scene, they encountered light smoke in the interior of the house. An offensive attack was launched and the fire was declared under control at 11:39 p.m.
All occupants of the house safely self-evacuated prior to the arrival of crews and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental and no damage estimates are available at this time.
At 5:35 a.m. on November 25, the WFPS responded to a monitored alarm in a commercial / industrial building in the first 100 block of Hoka Street.
When crews arrived to the location, they found fire on the exterior of the building. While it was being extinguished, crews discovered the fire also extended into the facility and an offensive attack was launched. Heavy smoke and the location of the fire within a paper compactor and conveyor equipment made it difficult to locate and access. The WFPS drone was used to search for hot spots. The fire was declared under control at 7:24 a.m.
There were no occupants in the building at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation and no damage estimates are available at this time.
