Miramichi family loses new home in fire
The Canadian Red Cross is helping out a Miramichi family after a fire burned its new home to its foundation on Friday afternoon.
The fire on Northwest Road near Sunny Corner was reported around 3 p.m.
“A family of four whose weekend plan was to finish moving into a newly built home in a rural area west of Miramichi, New Brunswick, instead is getting some emergency aid,” wrote the organization in a news release.
The Red Cross says its disaster volunteers are providing emergency lodging, food and some new clothing for a man, woman, 13-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy.
There are no reported injuries and no word on the cause yet.
