Winnipeg crews put out small fire in highrise
Winnipeg firefighters extinguished a small fire in a downtown apartment suite on Wednesday evening.
Fire crews were called at 7:10 p.m. CT to a general alarm at the Holiday Towers at Hargrave Street and York Avenue.
Water was seen pouring out of a 16th-floor balcony, spilling onto balconies below it and raining down onto the street.
Tenants told CBC News that they were told there was a small fire in a 16th-floor suite.
A platoon chief on the scene confirmed that there was a small fire, and it is under investigation.
Much of the building was evacuated, but fire officials said most tenants should be allowed back into their suites later that evening.
