WINNIPEG — An overnight fire has closed Manitoba Public Insurance’s Gateway Service Centre until further notice.

Winnipeg firefighters were called to the commercial building just before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday for a monitored fire alarm.

Crews arrived to find smoke coming from the building and had the blaze under control by just after 4 a.m.

Nobody was inside at the time and no injuries were reported. The cause remains under investigation and no damage estimates are available.

MPI says scheduled appointments, including those for driver testing, adjusting and estimating services, have been cancelled at the Gateway location and customers are being contacted to reschedule.

All other customers are encouraged to visit an alternate MPI Service Centre location or their Autopac agent for other service needs. Additionally, walk-in knowledge testing appointments for all licence classes are available at Cityplace (2nd floor) in Winnipeg on weekdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1- 4 p.m.

MPI says further updates will be shared on their website.
