Brush Fire Destroys House in Vermont

April 22, 2009

Dry, windy conditions across Vermont are being blamed for brush fires, including one that destroyed a house in Lyndon.

Vermont State Police Detective Sgt. Fred Cornell says the fire Monday in Lyndon — believed to have started with an outdoor wood furnace — spread because of high winds, engulfing a multifamily home on Burrington Bridge Road. There were no injuries.

In Sheldon, at least five acres of woods burned Monday in a blaze of undetermined origin near Rice Hill Road. No one was hurt, and no structures were damaged, according to WCAX-TV.
