Fire guts Miramichi home

Fire forced a family of four from their home in Miramichi earlier this week.

The Miramichi Leader reports the blaze happened just before midnight on Wednesday on Kingston Ave.

Neighbours helped the mother, father, and their two twin boys escape the home which was completely engulfed by the time fire crews arrived.

The city's fire chief says it appears as though the fire spread to the house from the garage area.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
