One person is dead after a fire in St. Boniface Monday morning.
The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) says they responded to a monitored fire alarm notification and 911 call reporting a fire in a two storey, single-family home in the 100 block of Horace Street. They were told that one individual was trapped in the home.
Firefighters used a ladder to enter the home and found one person deceased.
Everyone else inside the home was able to self-evacuate before the fire department arrived.
The WFPS says the cause of the fire is still under investigation, however, it appears that the fire was not suspicious in nature.
