WINNIPEG – Two people are in hospital after an overnight house fire in Winnipeg.
Emergency authorities say the two-storey home was engulfed in flames and smoke when firefighters arrived at the scene in the 0-100 block of Prince Edward Street shortly before 2:30 a.m.
Two people managed to get out of the building before crews arrived.
Officials say one of them was critically injured while the second person was in unstable condition.
A separate fire at an empty two-storey apartment block in the 400 block of Maryland Street Thursday evening resulted in a firefighter being taken to hospital.
There is no immediate word on that person’s condition.
