BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Investigators say a fire that damaged a home in Burlington’s New North End Wednesday was caused by a heat tape malfunction.

The Burlington Fire Department responded around 4 p.m. to the home at 60 Avenue B.

One woman was in the home at the time of the fire. She was not injured but was taken to the hospital as a precaution for smoke inhalation. Three pets were also rescued from the home.

The Burlington Fire Marshal’s Office found evidence of failed heat tape under the water heater.
