A family on Newfoundland's Baie Verte Peninsula lost its home in a fire over the weekend.

The house Post Office Road in Westport caught fire Saturday night around 8 p.m. and was destroyed, displacing the five family members who lived there.

The family, a couple and their three children ranging in age from three to eight years old, were not injured. They are now staying with relatives.

The Canadian Red Cross said it is helping the family with emergency supplies such as clothing and food.
