A two-roomed house at Pine Hill, the property of Frank Pernisky, was destroyed by fire yesterday morning. It appears that Pernisky left the house about eight o’clock to attend to some wood cutting, at which he was engaged in the adjoining bush, Mrs Pernisky, after placing some meat in a camp oven in the kitchen, also left the premises two hours later, and shortly afterwards heard someone ciyingoutthat the house was in flames. Mrs Annie Pern'sky, who resides close by, said that she saw flames issuing from the kitohen windows, but, although she gave the alarm, the building was totally destroyed. The house was insured in the New Zealand Office for L7O, and the furniture in the same office for L3O. All the personal effects of Pernisky and his wife were destroyed.
