Winnipeg: Crews respond to six 'suspicious' fires

Winnipeg fire crews were kept busy Monday night after responding to six ‘suspicious’ fires in the city’s North End.

Just before 8:50 p.m. firefighters were called to a garage fire in the 400 block of Mountain Avenue.

This would be the first in a series of garage fires crews were called to in the span of just over an hour. The other three fires took place in: a garage in the back of the 500 block of College Avenue; an attached garage in the 700 block of Redwood Avenue; and a garage in the back of the 700 block of Aberdeen Avenue.

All four of these fires were under control by about 10:15 p.m.

Firefighters were then called to two garbage fires: one in the back lane of Magnus Avenue and one on Manitoba Avenue.

No one was hurt. The city said the fires are being investigated and are considered suspicious.
