Vacant home was fully involved when Woodstock firefighters arrived on the scene

An early morning blaze destroyed a house on Cape Road in Newburg, northeast of Woodstock, Thursday morning, Sept. 14.

Woodstock Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief Ryan Gould said the fire call occurred at approximately 12:55 a.m. Thursday morning.

“The fire was fully involved when we arrived,” he said. “It was pretty well gone.”

Gould said the house, which was for sale, was vacant.

He said the department contacted the Fire Marshal’s Office, but they did not attend the scene.

Gould said they did not determine the cause of the fire or whether it was suspicious.

He said the RCMP attended the scene, adding any further investigation “is in their hands.”

Gould said NB Power workers responded to disconnect the power leading to the house.

The deputy chief believes a neighbour reported the fire.

He said no one was injured.
