Fire-fighters save Ferris Farm home, which sustained damage only to roof and furniture

The interior and roof of a Ferris Farm house, near LICS Limited on All Saints Road, were damaged in a fire this morning, January 20.

Although the fire did not consume the entire wooden structure, two fire tenders had to be dispatched to the scene.

Fire Chief Elvis Weaver says that a sofa in the living room was badly burnt, but the blaze did not spread to other parts of the house.  It did, however, cause damage to the roof.

Weaver says the occupants of the house were not at home when the fire started.
