WALDEN, Vt. (WCAX) - A Walden home was destroyed by fire and several pets died in the blaze.
Eight fire departments responded early Wednesday morning to the three-story building on Coles Pond Road.
According to the Walden Fire Department, the flames were fast-moving, and while the people were able to get out, the house and contents are a total loss and some pets died.
One challenge for crews was the lack of water. Many ponds are still frozen over, and crews had to hook up to a rural hydrant on a different road and use water tankers.
