House fire on Symonds Place

From The Telegram


When firefighters from the St. John’s Regional fire department arrived, there was smoke coming from the home and heavy fire in the kitchen area. The family’s cat was in the house but escaped as firefighters entered the home to battle the blaze.

The fire was quickly extinguished but not before the damage was done. The scene has been turned over to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and the incident is under investigation.
