WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Fire crews respond to a Hotel fire on Wellington Avenue Friday afternoon just before 3:30pm.
Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responded to an automatic fire alarm at a hotel in the 1800 block of Wellington Avenue. While responding, more 911 reports were received indicating fire in one of the suites.
Fire crews found smoke in the first floor hallway of the hotel. The automatic fire sprinkler system had activated and kept the fire from extending beyond the room of origin. Crews then worked to ventilate smoke from the building.

Fire damage was contained to the suite where the fire originated. Other areas of the hotel suffered minor smoke and water damage. No damage estimates are available at this time.
