RCMP are working with P.E.I.'s provincial fire marshal's office to determine the cause of a cottage fire in the early morning hours of Monday.

East Prince RCMP and the Kensington Fire Department responded to a report of a structure fire on Eagles View Lane in Malpeque shortly after midnight.

Kensington fire officials say the fire was reported by a neighbour. The cottage was almost completely destroyed by the time they arrived, and there were only two walls left standing by the time they could put the fire out.

The cottage was vacant when the fire started.
