Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service Responds to Two House Fires

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) recently responded to two separate fires, one on Manitoba Avenue and the other on Delorme Bay.

The first incident occurred at a two-storey converted residential dwelling in the 300 block of Manitoba Avenue. WFPS crews were called to the scene at 5:44 p.m. on Monday, April 15, where they found smoke coming from the structure. An interior fire attack was launched, and the fire was brought under control by 6:48 p.m. However, crews had to respond again at 2:22 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16, after a fire was discovered during a fire watch check. The fire was declared under control at 3 a.m. The dwelling, which was unoccupied and boarded up due to a previous fire on March 27, 2024, suffered an unknown amount of damage. The cause of both fires is currently under investigation.

The second incident took place at a single-storey dwelling in the first 100 block of Delorme Avenue. WFPS crews responded to the scene at 1:32 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16. Upon arrival, crews observed light smoke coming from the house. They entered the building and quickly extinguished the fire, declaring it under control at 2 p.m. The occupants of the home had self-evacuated before crews arrived on scene, and no injuries were reported. The cause of this fire is also under investigation.
