HARDWICK, Vt. -

Fire heavily damaged a home in Hardwick Monday.

Flames and smoke filled a single-family house at 133 Central Street Monday afternoon.

Fire officials say the blaze quickly spread from the first floor to the attic and that seven departments were called in to help put it out.

"We started with an initial attack outside, until I got mutual aid here. Once we got mutual aid here we managed to get inside and knock things down," said Asst. Chief Perley Allen of the Hardwick Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is undetermined but not considered suspicious.

No one was home at the time of the incident. The five people who were displaced are staying with family.
