A home on the Port au Port Peninsula could not be saved despite the efforts of three volunteer fire departments earlier this week.
The fire broke out in a home on Oceanview Drive in Degrau just after 1:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. By the time members of the Lourdes, Cape St. George and Port au Port Fire Departments arrived on the scene, the house was already engulfed in flames.
There was no one home at the time. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
