A pair of north Winnipeg house fires kept firefighters racing on Sunday morning, while residents escaped the blazes with no life-threatening injuries.
Just before 5 a.m. on Sunday, a fire broke out in the basement of a Lansdowne Avenue home. Four crews of firefighters rushed to put out the blaze and found an elderly woman suffering from an injury. She was taken to hospital in stable condition. The fire caused $150,000 damage to the house and its contents.
Only 16 minutes later, firefighters rushed to a house on Poplar Avenue, where a fire had spread throughout the home. Crews were able to contain the blaze, which is also estimated to have caused $150,000 in damage. There were no injuries.
Both fires remain under investigation.
