Monday morning the Winkler Fire Department had an early wake up call as smoke alarms at a house in Hochfeld went off around 3:43 a.m.

A residence on Brock Ave. in the village south of Winkler was on fire and eventually put out by the emergency crew.

It appears the fire started somewhere in the garage and was extinguished before it could spread further towards the house.

Neighbours report that everyone in the house made it out safely thanks to the smoke detectors alerting them of the fire.
