Abandoned house and barn destroyed in fire

SWANTON, Vt. (WCAX) Fire investigators will be back in Swanton Monday morning after an abandoned house and barn went up in flames.

Highgate Fire officials say they responded to the fire on Waugh Farm Road around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night. Because it was in a remote area on a class 4 road, they say it was hard to get to the scene.

Both the house and barn are a total loss. The abandoned buildings had no power hooked up and so investigators are looking into what sparked the blaze.
