Four treated for smoke inhalation

A fire in the King Edward neighbourhood Monday sent a family to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and caused $80,000 in damage.

A 1.5-storey house on Rutland Street, south of Richardson International Airport, had to be evacuated due to a fire that started in an upstairs bedroom, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service said.

Four people were sent to hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation, the WFPS said.

 

Mantario hikers rescued

A hiker was rescued after experiencing extreme abdominal pain in Whiteshell Provincial Park, RCMP said Monday.

RCMP received a distress call Monday around 9:30 a.m. from the hiker on the Mantario Trail near Moosehead Lake.

The hiker was with two other people. All three are from Winnipeg.

RCMP rescued the hiker with the help of a float plane from Adventure Air from Lac du Bonnet.

The hiker was taken to hospital by ambulance.

It was the second rescue of a hiker by Lac du Bonnet RCMP in recent days.

Two men were stranded while hiking the Mantario Trail over the weekend.

Around 3 a.m. Saturday, RCMP got a call from the hikers, one of whom was injured and couldn't carry on.

As weather conditions worsened overnight, the pair called for help.

Manitoba Conservation workers and a floatplane helped the RCMP rescue the missing hikers at Ritchey Lake around 4 p.m. Saturday.

RCMP warn hikers to take cellphones and materials to make a fire when they head out on the trail.

They also said hikers should check local weather conditions and let others know where they are going and when they are expected to arrive at their destination.
