Wednesday was a busy day for Winnipeg firefighters — most notably with the blaze that destroyed the historic Windsor Hotel, but they received other calls as well, including at a house that burned for the second day in a row.

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service says crews were called to the Alexander Avenue house around 10:15 p.m., and were able to get the flames under control within a half hour.

Early Tuesday morning, they were at the same scene, tackling a structure fire just after 4 a.m.

Although no one was injured in either incident, the first fire at the property led to the temporary evacuation of neighbouring homes as a precaution.

The cause of both fires remains under investigation.
