Platoon chief Gerry O’Neill of the St. John’s Regional fire department said the fire was reported by a passing taxi driver at 3:14 a.m. and by the time their trucks arrived on scene, there was heavy smoke and flame coming from both structures.

They quickly laid attack lines and searched the house for anyone inside. While there was no one home, they did safely locate a family cat and turned it over to Eastern Health paramedics until personnel from Humane Services arrived.
