Winnipeg fire crews were kept busy Saturday battling a pair of high-rise fires.

The first fire broke out just before 1 p.m. on Saturday in a seven-storey hotel in the 500 block of Main Street.

When crews arrived, they found the fire in one of the suites. The fire had been kept under control by the building's sprinkler system and firefighters were able to quickly put out the remaining hot spots.

Some residents of the building self-evacuated, others sheltered in place. No injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, later that day, at around 11:50 p.m., a second fire broke out in a high-rise apartment complex in the 400 block of Kennedy Street.

When firefighters arrived at the scene they found smoke in the building. A second alarm was called which increased the number of crews on scene. Firefighters located the fire and quickly extinguished it. 

Residents were directed to shelter in place. No injuries were reported.

The cause of both fires remains under investigation.
