Eight people were evacuated, one requiring assistance from the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS), from a house fire Sunday morning.

Firefighters were called to a fire in a single-family bungalow on Lockwood Avenue between Grosvenor Avenue and Kingsway at 5:20 a.m.

WFPS said, when crews arrived, they encountered smoke coming from the house and launched an offensive attack. They declared the fire under control at 5:40 a.m. 

According to the WFPS, seven occupants safely self-evacuated the bungalow before the arrival of first responders. Firefighters located and brought one more person to safety. 

All of the occupants were assessed on-scene by paramedics and did not require further care. No injuries were reported. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No damage estimates are available at this time.
