Winnipeg police are investigating after a number of what they are calling “suspicious” overnight fires in Elmwood.
On Tuesday at 11:20 p.m. a fire happened in the vicinity of Talbot Avenue and Gateway Road.
Then, at 11:23 p.m., a call came in reporting a fire in the rear of the 500 block of Harbison Avenue East. Crews extinguished what they are calling a debris fire that had extended to a shed.
At 11:30 p.m. another call came in regarding a garage fire in the 500 block of Harbison Avenue East which was also quickly extinguished by crews.
Then, only a minute later, crews rushed off to a fire in the rear of the 400 block of Tweed Avenue and were confronted with a bin fire. This was also quickly extinguished before it spread.
No injuries were reported as a result of these fires but they are considered suspicious and anyone with any information is asked to contact Winnipeg police.
