Morning fire temporarily closes road in Vernon
VERNON — Firefighters responded to a first-alarm fire at 3369 Fort Bridgman Road, which temporarily shut down the street Sunday morning.
Vernon Assistant Fire Chief Keith Franklin told the Reformer the Vernon Volunteer Fire Department received a report of a structure fire and smoke was smoking from the building when firefighters arrived on scene.
Franklin said the residents and their pets exited the home with no injury. The department reached out to Red Cross to assist them.
It was too early for Franklin to name the cause of the fire and say whether the building is considered to be a total loss.
At 8:18 a.m. Sunday, the Vermont Department of Public Safety issued a notice saying that Fort Bridgman Road would be temporarily closed due to an incident. At 10:07 a.m., the department said the road had been reopened.
