Winnipeg fire crews had yet another busy night putting out flames around the city.

They were called just after 11:30 p.m. Monday night in a trailer behind a home in the 1000-block of Sherburn Street in the West End.

Then just before 2 a.m. they were called out to a garage fire in the 600 block of Harbison Avenue East, in the Elmwood neighbourhood. The blaze had also spread to a neighbouring garage.

Damage is estimated at $25,000 to the first garage and its contents. The second garage had $11,000 in damage.

Around 4 a.m., crews were called back to the Sherburn address where a fence and construction materials were burning.

Those flames were extinguished quickly.

No one was hurt in any of the fires, which are under investigation.
