Winnipeg firefighters douse three blazes Sunday

Winnipeg firefighters were kept busy Sunday while battling three different blazes in which no one was injured.

Crews raced to the scene of a fire in a two-and-a-half storey home in the 400 block of Langside Street just after 8 a.m.

According to WFPS, firefighters arrived to find smoke and flames rising from the windows of the house. They attacked the fire and prevented neighbouring houses from going up also.

Firefighters say the flames were doused by about 9:20 a.m. Two adjacent homes were damaged slightly by the flames, but the residents will be able to go back inside.

No one was injured and the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service is still investigating the cause.
