Police told CBC Tuesday morning that traffic was blocked just west of Pembina Highway at Chevrier and Hervo Street, which intersects Manahan Avenue.

No further details were immediately available about the extent of the damage or whether there were any injuries.

Tuesday’s fire is the second in that area this month.

A commercial warehouse on Manahan Avenue was badly damaged in a March 5 fire. That warehouse was expected to be a complete loss due to severe fire, smoke and water damage, the City of Winnipeg said at the time.
