Crews in West Rutland fought a raging house fire for six hours Sunday.
It happened at a home on Skyline Drive around 10:30 a.m. Officials say the two-story home was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived. The homeowner, Dennis Smith, was not home at the time. The chief says they believe the fire started in the garage and strong winds made it difficult to bring under control. The house is considered a total loss. A state fire investigator is being brought in, but officials say there are no signs it was suspicious in origin. Rutland Town, Proctor and Clarendon also responded to the blaze.
