House Fire on Roblin Blvd


Wednesday, January 4, 2023 - The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) is urging people to drive with caution on Roblin Blvd after crews battled a house Tuesday evening.


WFPS officials said they responded to a fire in a single-storey house in the 5700 block of Roblin Boulevard shortly after 7:00 p.m.


At the scene, crews saw heavy smoke coming from the house. Firefighters attacked from the outside until it was safe enough to enter the house. The fire was under control at 7:59 p.m.


Firefighters searched the house to ensure there was no one inside. No injuries were reported.


The cause of the fire is accidental related to temporary heating in the building while it was under construction. The house sustained moderate damages from smoke and fire.


Drivers and pedestrians should use caution in the area as water used the fight the fire has now frozen on the roadways causing slippery conditions. The City is monitoring conditions and applying sand and de-icing agents to roadways as required to improve traction.
