Main Street building complete loss following Friday night blaze, City of Winnipeg says

A building on one of Winnipeg’s main roadways is considered a complete loss after it caught fire Friday night, the City of Winnipeg says.

Crews were working to put out the fire in a three-storey building on Main Street, near the Disraeli Freeway intersection, until 3:39 a.m. Saturday, according to the city. They responded to the fire shortly before 8 p.m. Friday.

First responders had blocked off parts of Main Street while they were putting put the fire.

As of Saturday morning, southbound Main Street between Alexander and Logan avenues was still closed, though northbound Main had reopened, the city said in a news release sent just before 9 a.m. Saturday.

Some crews were still on scene putting out hotspots. No one was injured, the city says.

Minutes after crews had the fire on Main Street under control, fire-paramedics were called to a home on the 100 block of Hallet Street in North Point Douglas for a house fire, the city said.

Crews fund heavy smoke and flames coming from the two-storey home when they arrived. The city’s emergency social services group arrived to help residents find temporary accommodations, the city says.

The home suffered significant smoke, water and fire damage. That fire is being investigated.
