Two overnight blazes, one person hospitalized: Winnipeg firefighters

One person was taken to hospital following one of two fires that kept Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service crews busy early Sunday.

The first happened just before 3 a.m. at a commercial building in the 100-block of Provencher Boulevard.

Officials say crews arrived on scene to find heavy smoke coming from the two-storey structure.

They launched an offensive attack, but it still took almost two hours to put out.

No one was inside at the time, but a nearby apartment suite was evacuated as a precaution.
