WINNIPEG (CITYNEWS) – One person and one dog are dead after a blaze at a single family home Saturday morning on Martell Crescent near Maevista Place.

Fire crews were called to the scene shortly after 10:20 a.m. and arrived to find a “well-involved” fire with flames shooting from the basement windows.

Calls to the 9-11 dispatch centre suggested there may be someone trapped inside the home. Crews entered the building to search for the resident and found the bodies of one person and a dog.

There’s no word on the identity of the victim or what sparked the deadly inferno. No damage estimates were immediately available either.

An investigation has been opened and is ongoing.
