Firefighters prepare to pack up following a small blaze in the 500 block of Wyandotte Street East

Windsor firefighters have extinguished a string of small rubbish fires in the downtown area, Sunday afternoon and evening.

Firefighters were called in the afternoon to the 800 block of Dougall and found garbage burning. The fire did not spread to neighbouring buildings and was extinguished within minutes.

Just before 3pm, fire crews were called to Wyandotte Street East at Langlois where a couch and several items of garbage were burning. The fire produced a fair amount of smoke, some of which entered a neighbouring building. Firefighters knocked down the flames in minutes and police shut Wyandotte down to traffic temporarily.

Around 8:30pm, three fire trucks were called to the area of Glengarry and Brant street and crews found a small amount of garbage and a couch burning. The fire was extinguished quickly.

Firefighters were also called just before 11pm back to the area of Glengarry and Brant after witnesses saw flames shooting up the side of a variety store in the 500 block of Wyandotte Street East.

Crews arrived and extinguished a large amount of garbage and a couch that had been lit on fire. Witnesses say the flames burned a nearby building’s eaves.

There were no injuries in any of the blazes, and it’s not clear if all the fires are connected.
