Most occupants safely self-evacuated and those who remained were assisted by firefighters.

Most of the building’s residents were able to return to their suites after the fire was extinguished, but two suites sustained significant fire and water damage.

The city is helping those people find temporary accommodations for the time being.

A Winnipeg Transit bus was also deployed to the scene last night to provide shelter for evacuees.
