Red Cross Helps Pair after Fire in Johnville, New Brunswick
The Canadian Red Cross has stepped in to help a family after a fire destroyed their home in Johnville over the weekend.
Disaster volunteers with the Canadian Red Cross have arranged emergency purchases of clothing, food and other support for a woman in her 60s and her adult son, both of whom are staying with relatives for now. Neither was injured.
A statement from the RCMP said police were called to the home around 9 p.m. Friday after a report that a man was barricaded inside. Around 5 a.m. Saturday, police said the house and two adjacent sheds caught fire and were destroyed and the body of a man, identified by the RCMP as 45-year-old Anthony Armour, was located outside the home at around 10:30 a.m. An autopsy was planned to determine the cause of death.
There was no immediate confirmation on the cause of the fire, at 12 South Johnville Road.
