Police say the cause of the fire, and estimated value of loss remain unknown as investigations continue.

In a separate incident, the home of a 39 year old St. John’s resident was also completely destroyed by fire on Saturday.

According to reports the Gouyave Fire Department was alerted of the fire shortly after 9pm .

Fire fighters encountered difficulty reaching the four-bedroom home due to the steep terrain at which the house was located.

A report from the Community Relations Department of the RGPF estimated the loss at $150,000.
