A family dog is dead following a house fire on Gary Drive in Goulds.
Nobody else was home at the time when witnesses noticed heavy smoke pouring from the house. Members of Goulds Fire Department were first on the scene and had most of the blaze knocked down when back up arrived from the Mount Pearl Fire Department.
Superintendent Don Byrne said investigators have been called in to determine the cause of the fire. The house suffered heavy smoke and fire damage. Firefighters are still on the scene checking for hot spots.
