A large tire flew off a farm vehicle and smashed through the side of a home in Shoreham, Vermont.

Vermont State Police said a farm truck operated by a Bristol man suffered a mechanical failure Sunday afternoon, causing the driver's side rear tire to detach from the vehicle.

The tire left the roadway and careened through the wall of a Richville Road resident, landing inside the home, according to police.

The homeowner told police the large tire was on fire when it crashed into his house, the investigator said.

No injuries resulted from the lost tire, only substantial property damage, police said.
