Police suspect arson to be the cause of a fire in Dauphin after a mother and her three children were rescued over the weekend.

Emergency crews responded on Sunday at around 3:25 a.m. after a shed on fire had quickly spread to an adjacent residence.

Two officers banged on the windows and doors, but nobody answered. A mother and her three children were woken up after officers entered the home and evacuated them safely. No one was injured.

No arrests have been made in connection to the fire.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Dauphin RCMP at (204) 622-5020 or Manitoba Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
