Two adults lost their home and belongings to a fire early Saturday morning in Canterbury, about 30 kilometres south of Woodstock. 

The blaze at 15 Dorrington Hill Road was spotted by a passerby around 5:45 a.m.  Fire crews from several communities responded.

There were no injuries as the couple was away in Moncton at the time and had to quickly cancel a planned out-of-province trip, according to Dan Bedell of the Canadian Red Cross.
