A family of five is homeless after a fire gutted their Middletown Springs home Thursday.
Officials say the call came in at about 10:19 a.m.
Multiple departments responded to the fire at the Blanchard home on North Street and crews were still fighting the flames well into the afternoon. The house was destroyed.
No one was home at the time, and no injuries were reported.
A preliminary investigation found the fire was not suspicious. It is believed to have originated near the wood stove. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Sutton at 802-773-9101 or the Vermont Arson Tip Award Program at 1-800-32-ARSON.
