Little Bay home destroyed by fire
Cause of fire being investigated
A home in the community of Little Bay was destroyed by fire early Sunday morning, May 13.
Fire Chief Alex Coady told The Southern Gazette the Marystown Volunteer Fire Department received a call about the fire at approximately 2:45 a.m. on Sunday.
“We responded with engine 3, rescue with the ladder, and 15 firefighters,” said Chief Coady.
With the fire extinguished, Coady said they returned to the fire hall at approximately 6:30 a.m. to do clean up.
They were called back again, however, when representatives from Belfor —a company providing security at the scene — noticed smoke coming from the structure again.
“Belfor was doing some security at the scene and they noticed some smoke coming from the upper level.”
Firefighters remained on scene for almost an hour before returning to the station.
Members of the Marystown Volunteer Fire Department were called back to the scene of a house fire on Sunday, May 13, after security watching the property saw smoke coming from inside the structure.
