Explosive fire in Winnipeg

Thick, black smoke and flames spewed late Monday from a Winnipeg warehouse that holds highly explosive fuel used for car racing.

Thick, black smoke and flames spewed late Monday from a Winnipeg warehouse that holds highly explosive fuel used for car racing.

Dozens of emergency vehicles were expected to spend the night on site at Speedway International, a company that boasts on its website it is "North America's No. 1 source for 99.99 per cent racing methanol."

A huge fireball went up in the air shortly before the supper hour. It was followed by more explosions and smaller fireballs as the contents of the warehouse ignited. No one was inside the building at the time and no one was injured.
