Two people were taken to hospital following an early morning apartment fire on Corydon Avenue Sunday.
An automatic alarm notified the fire department about the blaze at 915 Corydon Ave. at 3:57 a.m., a fire department spokesman said. When firefighters arrived at the scene, flames could be seen from the northwest corner of the building.
The fire was contained in one suite, the spokesman said. Some residents of the building were able to shelter in their suites; others took shelter in a Winnipeg Transit bus at the scene, the fire department spokesman said.
Three people received medical assessments at the scene and two were taken to hospital for further assessment. There was no word on their condition Sunday. A total of 17 emergency vehicles responded to the call, including a ladder truck and paramedic units.
The cause of the fire and a damage assessment were not available Sunday.
