SWANTON, Vt. (WCAX) - One man was injured in a fire in Swanton.

The fire broke out Sunday afternoon on South River Road.

The Swanton Fire Department said an equipment shed next to a barn caught fire. Crews said it appears a furnace sparked the flames, but they’re still investigating the cause.

One man suffered burns. A tractor, snowmobiles and other farm equipment were destroyed in the fire.

The wind made it even more difficult to get under control, but crews from neighboring towns helped put it out.
