Heavy flames, smoke seriously damage St. James garage

Not much is left of a garage in Winnipeg’s St. James neighbourhood after flames ripped through it early Saturday morning.

The City of Winnipeg says firefighters were called to an address on Parkview Street, between St. Matthews and Silver avenues, just after 1:10 a.m.

When the crews arrived, they found heavy flames and smoke coming from the garage. Firefighters protected nearby homes, ensuring the flames didn’t spread.

No injuries were reported.
