There is no word on the cause of the fire right now, any injuries or if there was anyone home at the time.
Const. James Cadigan, media relations officer for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, told CBC News that the matter is under investigation.
Cadigan added that the RNC's fire investigator is on location, but that it's protocol for large scale fires which cause severe damage.
Police say it's too early into the investigation to offer any more information.
Firefighters at the scene would not comment on the matter.
