Fire destroyed a home in Bay Bulls on the southern shore of the Avalon Peninsula on Friday.

The blaze broke out late in the afternoon, with thick, grey smoke pouring from the eaves of the three-storey structure.

A crew from the Witless Bay Fire Department responded, but were unable to save the home on Irishtown Road.

One person was home at the time, but was able to escape unscathed.

RCMP say while they don't yet know what caused the fire, they don't suspect arson.
