A woman is in hospital following an explosion in Winnipeg.
It happened Friday morning at the Petersen King law office in the Fort Rouge area.
Officials say the woman is suffering serious injuries to the upper body.
The surrounding area of River Ave. between Mayfair and Clarke have been closed off, with a SWAT team and bomb squad investigating.
The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Maria Mitousis, who practices family law at the firm. She was the only employee in the building at the time.
Officials say the explosion was “triggered inadvertently” by a device, but there is no threat to the general public.
The RCMP will be assisting with the investigation, finding out more about the device and if Mitousis was targeted.
