The Major Crimes Unit is investigating after a woman and infant were found dead inside a West Alexander home.

On Tuesday morning, emergency crews were alerted of a water leak and the smell of gas coming from a residence in the 200 block of Tecumseh Street.

After arriving at 11:40 a.m., crews found a fire inside the home. They also found the bodies of a deceased adult female and a deceased infant.

The Winnipeg Police Service says they are unable to give information on the pair's relation or ages at this time due to how early they are in the investigation. 

The Major Crimes Unit is asking those with information to call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
