Cabin levelled by New Year's fire, west coast RCMP investigating
Deer Lake RCMP are continuing to investigate a fire that burned a cabin to the ground on New Year's Day.
Police received a call of a fire on Shady Loop Road in the Jack Ladder area of Big Bonne Bay Pond shortly after 5 a.m. Friday.
When the RCMP arrived, the cabin was engulfed in flames and was completely destroyed by the fire.
Police said that no fire department responded to the blaze.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
It was one of three significant fires across Newfoundland during the first weekend of 2016, with homes in Clarke's Beach and Portugal Cove-St. Phillip's also heavily damaged by fire.
