A home was destroyed by fire Saturday morning on the Bradley Lake Road in Rothesay. Two members of the family were home at the time and managed to escape the fire after being awoken by their cat. Just after 8:30 am this morning, firefighters arrived to find the home heavily involved in fire with flames coming out of the roof of the home.
There was significant damage caused by the fire and the homeowners were being assisted by the Canadian Red Cross.
Tanker trucks from the Saint John Fire Department, Hampton Fire Rescue, and the Nauwigewauk Fire Department assisted with the water supply.
The fire is under investigation.
