One person died Monday after becoming trapped in a burning home in the Norwood area.

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service says crews responded to the 100 block of Horace Street at around 11:23 a.m. and found the two-storey home engulfed.

Crews used a ladder to enter and found one person deceased inside. Another person was able to self-evacuate before crews arrived.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but it’s not believed to be suspicious in nature.
