Arson is suspected in a blaze today which destroyed a million-dollar house under construction.
Firefighters said the house, in the 700 block of John Bruce Rd. E., was already three-quarters involved in flames when they arrived just before 3 a.m. The house was being constructed by Hilton Homes.
No one was injured, but firefighters said they evacuated three people and two dogs in the neighbouring house as a precaution.
Winnipeg police said the arson strike force is investigating the cause of the fire.
