Winnipeg police are investigating two more suspicious garage fires overnight.

The first blaze began in the 100 block of Arthur Wright Crescent at around midnight. The fire also caused damage to a fence and a neighbouring garage.

Damage is estimated at $31,000.

Firefighters were then called to the 400 block of Arlington Street at around 3:40 a.m. The garage fire was contained to its structure and caused $25,000 in damage.

Anyone with information on either incident is asked to contact police at (204) 986-6813 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).

Last week, firefighters responded to four fires within an hour of each other in the city’s North End.
