Fire tears through South Burlington condo carport

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - South Burlington Meadowbrook Condominium residents were evacuated overnight as fire tore through their garage.

This was the scene just after midnight Sunday at 69 Joy Drive as firefighters worked to put out the fire. The garage is described as a six bay, wood frame about 60 feet long. Firefighters told us someone from the condo spotted the blaze. Multiple departments responded including Vt Air National Guard Fire Dept. The three vehicles and all the garage contents are a total loss.

Sunday evening, the South Burlington Fire Marshal's office concluded the fire was accidental. Officials say it was caused by rags used to refinish furniture earlier in the day that were improperly disposed of.

No one was injured.
