Fire crews continue to battle a fire at Janzen's Paint and Decorating in Winkler.

The blaze broke out around lunch today, and it didn't take long for the fire to spread throughout the building, according to witnesses.

A toxic plume of smoke filled the sky, forcing police to temporarily close Highway 32 between Highway 14 and Cargil Road due to reduced visibility.
Highway 32 is now fully open to traffic.

Pembina Valley Online will continue to monitor the situation and update the story when new information becomes available.
