Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service responded to a wildland fire on Monday afternoon near Centreport Canada Way and Sturgeon Access Road.
Firefighters said that the fire was initially about the size of a football field but wind gusts at more than 40 km/h was causing the blaze to spread quickly.
Specialized equipment along with two Bison vehicles that are specifically designed to fight these types of fires were brought in. The fire was eventually contained and extinguished.
Less than 24 hours later crews were called back to the same location for a second wildfire. According to the city when crews arrived they found smoke coming from a treed area and extending into a grassy area.
Crews again used specialized equipment to knock down the fire. No injuries were reported.
On Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at approximately 2:26 pm crews were called back a third time to the same area as the two previous fires. Firefighters worked the fire until about 4:30 pm before leaving.
Just after 5:30 pm crews began returning for a fourth time to the same area. This time smoke was seen coming from a treed area near the earlier call. Over the next couple of hours, more crews and equipment returned to help battle the blaze that was growing in intensity.
The WFPS fire investigator along with members from the Office of the Fire Commissioner arrived on the scene to investigate the cause.
Just before 9:00 pm the city said the fire was declared under control.
