Residents and the fire department say the fire started in the shed and spread to several other outbuildings and the mini-home. The home was located on Route 10, just outside of Fredericton.
Steve Fraser, a platoon captain with the Fredericton fire department, said when fire crews arrived the rear of the mini-home was on fire along with several nearby buildings, such as sheds and workshops.
Fraser said firefighters were able to contain the fire in about 90 minutes and were able to save much of the house's contents.
No one was hurt in the fire.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The house fire was spotted by a passing motorist.
