A one-and-a-half storey house on Young Street in Winnipeg’s Spence neighborhood is expected to be a total loss, according to fire officials.
Firefighters were called to the blaze around 8:15 a.m. Thursday, and due to heavy flames and previous fire damage in the building, remained at the scene for an extended operation.
The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS), as of Thursday afternoon, said crews had not yet been able to search the building, but no one was believed to be inside.
No one was injured at the scene, but a neighboring house had to be evacuated as a precaution.
