Two Homes Catch Fire in Lac du Bonnet

RCMP Crest LogoFirefighters in the town of Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba fought two separate fires next to each other early Tuesday.

RCMP say the first blaze began at around 1:30 a.m. When police arrived, they noticed a second house upriver from the first had also caught fire.

The family in the first home — two women and a female youth — were able to escape without injuries. The second home wasn’t occupied. A third home downriver of the original fire suffered minimal damage.

The fires don’t appear to be suspicious, but police and the Office of the Fire Commissioner continue to investigate.
