BENNINGTON, Vt. -

A Bennington man is dead and his parents hospitalized after a house fire Saturday.

It happened shortly before 11 a.m. at a two-story home on 134 Lincoln St.  Officials say the body of Scott Moffitt, 36, was found on the first floor. Moffitt's father, Larry Moffitt, was treated for an injury he sustained while jumping from a second-floor window. His mother, Patricia Moffitt, made it out the front door but had to be flown to a Boston hospital to be treated for burns.

Officials said the fire appeared to have started in the kitchen at about 10:45 a.m. The Bennington Fire Department is located about 200 yards down the street from the home.
