A duplex in the William Whyte neighbourhood is being considered a complete loss after a fire Sunday night.
Winnipeg firefighters were called to the scene of the Parr Street blaze around 9:40 p.m., where five occupants had already managed to escape without injury.
The fire was declared under control two hours later, and fire crews remained on site overnight to make sure it was completely extinguished.
The city’s emergency social services helped the five people find temporary accommodations.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
