Stubborn Centreport Fire

Stubborn Centreport Fire

WINNIPEG - Firefighters continue to deal with a difficult fire a whole week after it started.

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service says it's been on scene at the brush and grass blaze a number of times to deal with flareups.

The WFPS, Fire Commissioner and land owners have decided on a long-term mitigation strategy so the area will likely continue to smoulder.

The fire which broke out last Monday near Centreport Canada Way is still under investigation.

There are no buildings in the area but long-term fires like this take a toll on crews.
