HARBOUR GRACE, NL — A house fire in Harbour Grace was dealt with by the lo­cal brigade last Wed­nes­day.

The Harbour Grace Vol­un­teer Fire Brigade re­sponded to a call early that af­ter­noon re­gard­ing a fire that had ig­nited in a home on Devon­shire Road.

Fire­fight­ers on the scene told The Com­pass no one was home at the time of the fire, which caused smoke and wa­ter da­m­age.

The lay­out of the build­ing posed some light dif­fi­cul­ties to fire­fight­ers re­spond­ing to the call, due to the lay­ered roof, but the flames did not take long to douse, tak­ing ap­prox­i­mately 15 min­utes, with fire­fight­ers be­gin­ning to clean up the scene at around 3 p.m.
