    Photos of the skeleton of the burnt out building is all that remains on  after the fire took hold at around 9pm on Saturday night.

    Reports said a passerby noticed fire coming out of the house and called the emergency services.

    As Kaniva News reported on Sunday, the firefighters who responded to the report of the blaze had to break down locked gates so they could reach the scene.

    The blaze is being investigated but the authority reportedly said there was no evidence of arson. However, the local media report have quoted other sources who believed the fire was caused by an electrical fault.

    The house was unoccupied at the time of the blaze.

    The royal property was normally guarded by His Majesty’s Armed Forces.
