A house fire in St. Vital destroyed two two-storey homes Friday afternoon and threatened a third.
The homes at 52 and 54 Nichol Avenue sustained $300,000 in damages each to the buildings and contents, but there were no injuries.
The cause is still under investigation.
Barry Evans, platoon chief with the Winnipeg Fire Department, was on the scene as crews and 20 units continued to fight the flames encompassing two homes on Nichol Avenue. The fire was originally reported around 1:19 p.m. Friday.
Evans said two homes' attics burned and a third adjacent home would have been in danger if the fire had spread. Three homes were evacuated.
Evans said both homes on Nichol would likely be total losses due to the high heat and humidity.
