FIRE CREWS WORK TO KEEP HOUSE OUT OF DANGER FROM A GARAGE FIRE


Thursday, April 6, 2023 - A double car garage fire on Lindenshore Drive kept the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) busy for a few hours early this morning.


At 1:55 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2023, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responded to reports of a garage fire in the 100 block of Lindenshore Drive.


When crews arrived on scene, around 1:55 a.m., they found a double, attached garage engulfed in smoke and flames, with fire spreading to the house. Initially, it was not safe for crews to enter the structure due to heavy fire conditions. Crews worked from the exterior of the house using an aerial ladder to put water on the fire. Once conditions improved, they were able to enter the house and fight the fire from inside. The fire was declared under control at 3:27 p.m.


All occupants of the house safely self-evacuated prior to the arrival of crews. No injuries were reported.


The cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage estimates are not available. The house and garage sustained significant smoke, fire, and water damage.
