Fire damages Weathersfield mill

Posted: Updated:
WEATHERSFIELD, Vt. - Nearly a dozen departments responded to a lumber mill fire in Weathersfield Sunday.

The exterior of the Sheehan and Sons lumber mill does not appear damaged from Sunday night's fire, but fire officials say there is extensive smoke and heat damage throughout the building.  Crews were called around 8 p.m. Sunday night after someone noticed smoke coming from the structure.  Firefighters say a malfunctioning battery charge was the likely cause of the fire.  Officials say the metal structure was the main reason the fire did not spread throughout the mill.  Ten years ago, fire destroyed the previous mill on this property.
