A home on Blossom Avenue in Mount Pearl was saved from extensive damage this afternoon due to the quick action of firefighters from the St. John’s Regional Fire Department.
When firefighters arrived at the scene the exterior left, front corner of the residence was engulfed in flames and smoke.
The area was soaked with foam which extinguished the fire.
Supt. Robert Fowler of the fire department said the owners had just left the house before the fire started.
The damage was mostly to the exterior of the home and firefighters remained on the scene for some time checking for hot spots.
Traffic in the area was impacted as fire hoses were pulled across the street.
