No injuries at Victor St. fire Saturday

An early afternoon blaze had Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responding to a two-and-a-half storey house in the 300 block of Victor St. Saturday.

Crews arrived to smoke coming from the home and launched an offensive attack.

They later had to transition to a defensive attack due to worsening conditions before re-entering the structure to fight the fire from the inside.

The fire was declared under control at 12:30 p.m.

All occupants of the home safely self-evacuated prior to the arrival of the WFPS and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
