WINNIPEG - A house fire on Selkirk Avenue that killed four dogs also sent two people to hospital in unstable condition. Two cats were also saved from the flames.
The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service got the call at around 5:30 last night. Crews were able to extinguish the blaze on Selkirk near McPhillips Street in about half an hour.
