Vacant Property

In Winnipeg, a recent vacant building fire resulted in $2.4M in damages

A fire recently gutted a four-story vacant building that was uninsured. Fire officials reported the next day the building had to be demolished because it was unstable after several floors in the structure collapsed.

In another case, a fire ripped through a historic vacant building in Winnipeg resulting in $2.4 million in damage. Fire, windstorms, lightning, and liability claims can lead to massive losses in vacant buildings due to infrequent monitoring.
