UPDATE: Pete's Dragon breathes smoke!

FLETCHER, Vt. Pete's Dragon is fully up and running in Fletcher.

The owner, Dave Day, was able to fix the tubing inside that allows it to breathe smoke, and it even whistles.

Day bought the 600 pound wood-burning stove recently from the widow of Peter Krusch.

Krusch made the dragon about 40 years ago. The hand-cut, pointy metal scales are from the roof of a 55 Ford. Krusch passed away last May at the age of 87.

Day said he eventually wants to make it a pizza oven.
