Fire officials are investigating what sparked a blaze at a home in the Point Douglas area Sunday night in Winnipeg.

Crews were called to the fire at the two-storey, multiple-family unit home on the 100 block of Euclid Avenue near Jarvis Avenue.

The city says heavy flames and smoke forced firefighters to take a defensive attack, fighting the fire from the outside until it was safe to go inside to fight the flames.
