After taming a fire in the early hours of this morning, the WFPS contacted the WPS after discovering a deceased individual within the structure.

At approximately 5:30 a.m. this morning, the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Services (WFPS) received a call regarding a garage that was ablaze at a residence in the 500 block of Mountain Avenue. 

While distinguishing the flames, firefighters located a dead adult victim in the garage and notified the police.

The victim was transported to the hospital for an autopsy, and until the results come in the Major Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate.
