Shortly after midnight on Saturday, firefighters arrived at the scene on Orcan Drive in Placentia to find a house engulfed in flames. When they arrived, the owners of the home were already outside, along with their 32-year-old son. The son had alerted his parents to the fire and had been badly burned. He was taken to hospital in Placentia, then transferred to the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s. How the blaze began is still under investigation.
