Fire crews are busy Saturday morning battling a large fire in downtown Winnipeg.

The fire broke out shortly before 7 a.m. in a commercial/industrial building in the 200 block of Logan Avenue, near Princess Street.

Flames and large plumes of smoke filled the sky as crews arrived on scene.

"Crews will be on scene into the afternoon," said the City of Winnipeg in a statement on social media.

Road closures are in place. Motorists and area residents are encouraged to avoid the area.
