News, Hanover Fire Department battling a fire in Steinbach on Jul 10, 2022.

Steinbach and Hanover Fire crews can be seen battling a fire on Main Street in Steinbach on Sunday afternoon. 

There is a lot of smoke billowing from the building that houses Janzen’s Paint and Decorating, Best West Pet Foods, H & R Block, Investia Financial Services, and Steinbach’s Flooring Canada.

RCMP advise the smoke could potentially be toxic and are asking us to avoid the area.

One lane of westbound Main Street is blocked off and water hoses are running across the sidewalk. That block of Friesen Avenue is also blocked off as crews are working on dousing the entire building, as smoke can be seen escaping from all areas. 

At the back of the building, a large water hose is running across Elmdale Street from a hydrant. That section of the street is blocked off and traffic will have to detour. 

 

This is a developing story. We will bring you more details as they become available. 

I was on site and took some amazing pictures from the firefighters fighting the fire.
