Vermont Officials Investigate “Suspicious” House Fire


Vermont fire officials say a fire that destroyed a Pownal house is being investigated as suspicious.

Pownal Fire Chief Walt Clark says the pre-dawn fire Sunday caused about $150,000 in damage.

He says the house at 91 Peaks Pine Road had been foreclosed on and it was unclear whether a bank or other company was responsible for the structure. He said officials have been unable to locate the last owners.

Clark says his department requested the help of state police to investigate the cause of the fire.

No injuries were reported.
