Several homes were damaged by fire early Saturday in the 700 block of Victor Street.

Winnipeg police say a fire started in the garage of one of the homes, quickly spreading to neighbouring structures on both sides.

Damage to the three homes is estimated at $400,000. No one was injured.

A short time later, a fire broke out in an apartment building in the same block of Victor Street. Several people were taken to hospital in stable condition.

Damage is estimated at $30,000.

Both fires are being treated as suspicious and police continue to investigate.
