A furniture store in Bennington was destroyed by fire Friday morning.
Officials say a fire broke out at LaFlammes furniture store on Harwood Hill Road just before 8 a.m.
Ten fire departments and close to 100 firefighters responded. Crews say below zero temperatures and windy conditions made battling the blaze extremely difficult and they were unable to save the building.
LaFlammes is famous in the area for its 19-foot wooden chair, which was unharmed by the fire.
