Vacant home on Manitoba Avenue to be demolished, say Winnipeg fire officials

No injuries are being reported in a fire at a vacant home on Manitoba Avenue Monday morning.

Fire crews were called to fire at the home in the 300 block of Manitoba Avenue just before 11 a.m.

Heavy smoke and fire forced firefighters to attack the blaze from the outside, the city said in a release later in the day.
