BURLINGTON — Vermont fire investigators say an early morning fire in a vacant Burlington apartment was arson.
While the apartment on Ethan Allen Parkway was vacant, three other apartments in the same building were occupied when one tenant called 911 at 5:15 a.m. Tuesday after hearing a smoke alarm go off in the empty apartment.
The families in the three apartments left the building, but they were allowed to return a short time later after firefighters extinguished the fire.
Investigators, along with a police dog, investigated and determined the fire was deliberately set.MORE IN Vermont NewsThe Department of Health could lose its funding from Entergy next year, ending more than 42 years... Full StoryMONTPELIER — A man convicted on charges he lied on a U.S. Full Story
