Young Street fire was arson, say Winnipeg Police
Firefighters say the blaze began in an abandoned duplex around 11:30 a.m. and quickly spread to a neighbouring house.
The duplex was boarded up from a previous fire that happened back in March 2018.
Flames could be seen shooting out of the abandoned home as high as six metres in the air when firefighters first arrived.
Six homes were affected by the blaze, but no injuries were reported.
The Major Crimes Unit is investigating and say they have suspects in custody.
