Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service responded to a fire in an eight storey apartment building on Hendon Avenue just after 11:15 pm on Tuesday night, August 13, 2019
The building was evacuated but two people suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene by paramedics.
The fire was limited to a suite on the seventh floor. Firefighters had to force their way into the suite but were able to quickly put out the blaze.
District 4 Chief Tony Fast said that when crews got into the suite they discovered a hoarder situation and a small fire. He said damage to the suite is minor.
Crews ventilated the building before anyone was allowed back inside.
Most residents of the building began returning to their suites just after 1:00 am although those on the 7th floor waited on a Transit bus for a little while longer.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
