Fire system foams Vt. Air Guard jets

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Vermont Air Guard responded to an incident on the ground Thursday afternoon.

Guard officials say there was an inadvertent release of the high-powered foam system meant as a fire suppressant in Building 150, otherwise known as Hanger 3. They tell WCAX News there was no fire, but the F-16s housed there were hit with foam.

An assessment is underway to determine if any damage was done and the incident is under investigation.

No one was hurt.
