A fire at a Oak Bluff, Man., business, just west of Winnipeg, sent huge plumes of black smoke over much of the city Wednesday.

A Global News videographer at the scene said the smoke appeared to be coming from a fire at Pool Pros Ltd, at 2595-B McGillivray Bvld. He reported smelling chlorine in the air around the fire.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.


Crews work to put out the fire.
