Fire Destroys Parkdale Cottage

The chief of the New Germany Fire Department says a weekend blaze has so badly damaged a cottage in Lunenburg county that they may not be able to determine it cause. Blair Lantz says the cottage on the Rusells Cove Road in Parkdale was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived yesterday afternoon. He says his department received a call at 3:05 Sunday afternoon and that no one was in the cottage at the time of the outbreak. Chief Lantz says the fire destroyed the cottage, a boat house, a boat and half-an-acre of woodland. Cornwall, Springfield and New Ross Firefighters were called-in to the scene. Blockhouse Northfield, Chester Basin and Bridgewater fire departments remained on "standby" status.
