It was a chilly start to the morning for residents of a West End apartment complex.

At around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, a fire broke out in an apartment building on Sherbrook Street near Sargent Avenue.

A Winnipeg Transit bus has been brought in to act as a warming shelter while residents wait to see if they can return to their suites.  

Sherbrook Street is closed at Sargent Avenue while crews clean up.

There is no word on injuries or a cause at this time

The investigation is ongoing.
