ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — A fire on Hatcher Street in St. John’s completely gutted the inside of a home early Friday morning.
When firefighters from the St. John’s Regional fire department arrived on scene just before 2 a.m., there was smoke and flames coming from the house and smoke from the fire was drifting across that area of the city. It took them about forty-five minutes to get the fire knocked down as they fought the blaze from inside, outside and from the roof.
An official on scene said that it appeared the house was under renovation and that they were trying to get in contact with the owner. A large dumpster was sitting in the driveway near the home.
There was no one inside the building at the time and there were no injuries.
The incident is under investigation.
