A Winnipeg home caught fire for the second time in one month.
Fire crews got a call just after 10 p.m. Sunday that a vacant house was on fire on Manitoba Avenue at McNichol Street.
Officials say flames could be seen shooting from the attic.
A platoon chief told CTV the fire worked its way from the bottom to the top of the two story building.
“I’m thinking it’s obviously the work of people that know that the house was obviously vacant,” witness, Paul Ducroix, said. “Either someone is going around deliberately starting fires, or it was a place for them to try it again.”
“Makes me a little more cautious,” he added.
Fire officials confirmed Sunday night, the fire happened in a home that had previously burned.
According to fire officials, there are no injuries.
