WINNIPEG, MB - A fire that destroyed two buildings in Winnipeg's Exchange District Thursday morning was caused by an electrical failure in a music store, officials say.

The fire started around 9:30 a.m. CT Thursday shrouding the area around Notre Dame Avenue and Albert Street in smoke.

The fire was ultimately contained to a building in the 100 block of Albert Street. The building was home to two business, the music store and a restaurant.
