WINNIPEG — One person died early Sunday after a fire at a home in the 700 block of Logan Avenue.
Emergency crews responded to the area at around 1:15 a.m. and located a 69-year-old woman inside.
Police were able to safely escort her to safety before firefighters arrived. They also learned a 45-year-old man was still inside the home. Police re-entered the structure and located the man, but retreated due to the intensity of the fire.
