Fairlee home hit by flooding and fire

Posted: Updated:
FAIRLEE, Vt. -

Residents of a Fairlee home got hit by flooding and fire Wednesday afternoon.

Floodwaters began washing away their driveway, and then moments later, the house was also on fire. The fire chief says the homeowners were cooking, got distracted by the storm and didn't notice when hot oil in the kitchen sparked flames.

Fire crews said the road washout made it hard for them to reach the house, but they were able to put it out eventually, and the house can be repaired.
