A fire is always a scary and dangerous thing, people might get hurt or killed, especially children and elderly citizens since they are not able to react fast and evacuate the building by themselves. Especially, if the fire happens at the restaurant full of people of different ages from small children to older citizens.
The Winnipeg firefighters had to deal with thick smoke, intense heat and other dangerous conditions when they fought the flame inside the restaurant in the bathroom area of the restaurant.
Emergency crews responded to the fire just before 11:45 a.m. The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service says no one was injured in a fire at an A&W restaurant in the 2500 block of Main Street Sunday.
Employees say that smoke and heat prevented firefighters from getting inside to quickly deal with an emergency. All staff and customers safely left the building, and there are no reports of injuries.
The surroundings were blocked to prevent people from getting close to the building for safety measures.
Winnipeg Fire Department started the investigation to determine the reason of the fire and what led to such outcome, the official statement will be presented after the investigation is closed, and there is no estimate yet for the damage done to the building.
Thankfully, no one was injured, in the fire and the WFPS continues to investigate the cause.
This is not the first time A&W restaurant is on fire, last time the fire occurred on February 10th and was caused by the faulty electrical equipment.
