Barn fire in East Montpelier

Posted: Updated:

A fire in East Montpelier burned down one barn and damaged another.

A homeowner on Cassavant Road was using a cutting torch in his workshop, when he accidentally started the fire. The former barn burned to the ground. The fire jumped to a second barn right next door. It was damaged but not destroyed. About 3 acres of grass were also scorched.

Firefighters said dry conditions and the wind made it a difficult fire to fight.
