A cabin in Gallants was completely destroyed by fire early today and a truck parked near it was extensively damaged.
Bay St George RCMP received the call about the fire at 2:55 a.m. and when fire services from Corner Brook and the Marine Institute’s Safety and Emergency Response Training Centre in Stephenville arrived on scene the building had been completely destroyed. Nobody was in the cabin when the fire broke out.
An investigation revealed the owner of the cabin had been doing renovations earlier in the night and stayed at a nearby cabin.
A police investigation is continuing and a fire investigator will be examining the scene today.
