Fire on Wilkes Ave


At 3:49 a.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2020, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responded to reports of a fire on a commercial property in the 1300 block of Loudoun Road.

When crews arrived on scene, they encountered heavy flames and smoke coming from two commercial buildings. Crews first launched a defensive attack and then transitioned to an offensive attack using water tankers to shuttle water to the scene, as the fire was outside the City of Winnipeg water district.

Crews protected several other nearby buildings including an adjacent home from the spread of the fire. All occupants of the home safely self-evacuated. No injuries were reported. The fire was declared under control at 6:20 a.m.
