WINNIPEG — Four people escaped a house fire at 282 Bannerman Avenue Wednesday morning.

One man was taken to hospital in critical condition — where he was later upgraded to stable — while three others made it out unharmed.

Heavy smoke could be seen billowing out from the two-story house, as area streets were blocked to traffic while firefighters worked to contain the blaze.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
