City firefighters battled a pair of house fires early this morning.

One man was injured in fire at a residence in the 600 block of Pritchard Avenue in the North End at about 1:30 a.m., but he is listed in stable condition in hospital.

The cause is unknown at this point. The blaze caused approximately $125,000 in damage.

Flames spread to a home next door as well, causing $85,000.

At around 6 a.m., two people safely escaped and were unharmed after a fire at about 6 a.m. at a home in the 1200 block of Edderton Avenue in Fort Garry.

A fire official said the fire appeared to start in the attached garage and contents and spread to the house.

There was $270,000 in damage to the building structure and about $150,000 to the contents.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
