Published on May 31, 2014

Firefighters made quick work of a house fire on Park Avenue in Mount Pearl Saturday evening.

 Two stations from the St. John's Regional Fire Department responded to the call and found smoke pouring from the eaves and windows of the small bungalow.

An attack team entered the front door through thick smoke and hosed down the fire located in the front living room. No one was home at the time. Traffic in the area of Smallwood Drive and Park Avenue was diverted so crews could work on the blaze.

Supt. Robert Fowler of the SJRFD said there was a report that a small dog was in the house but it was later determined the pet was with it's owners.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
