A warehouse in Blumenort has been destroyed after a fire early Saturday morning.

RCMP said fire crews from Steinbach, Ste. Anne and Kleefeld fought the blaze at a commercial property on Highway 311.

Several nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution, but residents have since been allowed to return.

Crews were able to contain the fire to just the one building.

No injuries were reported, but damages are said to be in the millions of dollars.

The Office of the Fire Commissioner is investigating the cause.
