The RNC have been called in to find out the cause of a fire in Paradise this morning which left a house with smoke and water damage.
The blaze broke out at about 5:20 a.m. with fire raging in the front room and the attic when firefighters arrived.
The house, located at 167 Paradise Road, was vacant and there was no furniture inside.
Paradise Road, a busy stretch which connects Topsail Road to St. Thomas Line, was closed to traffic for about an hour.
