A fire at a Super 8 in east Winnipeg sent smoke billowing above the city on Friday afternoon.
Firefighters responded to the Niawka Road blaze just before 4 p.m.
It’s unclear what sparked the fire at the motel, but emergency crews were able to gain a handle on it rather quickly.
The building was evacuated safely. Twenty-five guests were registered at the time of the fire, but there were no reported injuries.
A damage estimate isn’t yet available.
