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.
