The Canadian Red Cross says a man lost most of his belongings in a fire at a cabin on Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore late Saturday.

The Red Cross says the fire on Malay Falls Lochaber Mines Road —15 kilometres north of Sheet Harbour — was reported around 10 p.m.

They said the cabin was gutted in the blaze.

The Red Cross said the man was not injured and has been provided emergency lodging, food and clothing.

Officials are working to determine the cause.
