On Saturday at 1:15 a.m., officers on patrol saw a fire at a home in the 700 block of Logan Ave. and called the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service to the scene.

Before WFPS arrived, officers, assisted by a member of the K9 unit, entered the home and found a 69-year-old woman.

Officers safely escorted the woman out and learned there was a 45-year-old man still inside.

Tactical support officers then re-entered the home to find the man but had to leave because of the intensity of the fire.
