South Burlington police investigate house fire

Posted: Updated:

A South Burlington house hadn't even been finished being built and it already needs to be redone.

Fire tore through this home under construction at 29 Birch Street.

No one was living there yet.

"When a building is as fully involved as that was we make a decision, especially based on the fact that reports were telling us that no one was in the building," said South Burlington Fire Chief Douglas Brent. At that point it makes no sense for us to send people into the building to try and extinguish the fire."

The fire is not considered suspicious.

South Burlington's Fire Marshal is now investigating.
