Fire crews were concentrating on a section of the motel’s roof.

The City of Winnipeg said no one was hurt and motel guests were able to leave safely. One cat was found and rescued.

“Crews will remain on scene throughout the morning extinguishing hot spots. The cause of the fire will be under investigation. No damage estimates are currently available.”

The second fire since November, the motel was the site of a suite fire in November, where one man died.

The hotel was also the scene of a terrifying attack by two dogs last month, where three people were sent to the hospital, one with “life-altering” injuries, said police at the time.

Police said the dogs, later determined to be American bulldogs, attacked and “terrorized” numerous people in the motel parking lot before leaving the area.
