Fire Guts Building On Main Street

Fire Guts Building On Main

WINNIPEG - A large fire Saturday morning on Main Street in Winnipeg halted traffic in both directions for most of the day.

Crews, including an aerial ladder, were called to the blaze in the 800 block of Main just before 7:30 a.m.

Everyone living in the two story mixed-use building was able to get out safely, although one person was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital in stable condition.

A nearby high-rise was evacuated as a precaution. A city bus was used to keep evacuees warm.

The building is a complete loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
