A vacant house is a total loss after a fire Monday morning — the second blaze at the same location in a matter of weeks.

Winnipeg firefighters were called to the Victor Street house just before 5:30 a.m. and managed to get the situation under control in less than an hour.

Due to structural instability, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) said it ordered an emergency demolition of the building.

No one was injured in the fire, and the cause remains under investigation.
