The company, J Max Auto Service, had smoke and flames billowing from the building. Fire crews were still on scene Tuesday afternoon and told Global News there are still hot spots they can’t get to given the size and shape of the building.
Winnipeg police say the curb lane northbound Pembina at Lorette is blocked because of the blaze. Water has also flooded the area, which is a result of crews trying to battle the blaze throughout the night and morning.
Curb lane N/B Pembina at Lorette is blocked off due to a working commercial fire. Police and Fire crews on scene – please use caution
