After a Friday evening house fire in North Kildonan, officials are warning parents to talk to their kids about the dangers of playing with matches and lighters.
Firefighters went to a house on Claudia Place to extinguish a fire in a bedroom just before 9 p.m. They extinguished the blaze within 15 minutes.
Paramedics assessed one person on scene for injuries.
The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service believes a child playing with matches accidentally caused the fire. The city suggests parents always store lighters and matches in a place where children can’t access them.
