Vt. State Police - 10:10 am Thu Jan 17th, 2019
On January 6, 2019 at approximately 5:30 AM the Waterbury Fire Department was dispatched to 2141 Camels Hump Road in Duxbury for a structure fire.
Upon their arrival to the scene the Waterbury fire fighters observed the single story house almost completely burned to the foundation. The house was being used as a summer camp and did not have any electricity or heat at the time of the fire. The Waterbury Fire Chief, Gary Dillon, contacted the Department of Public Safety Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit and requested an origin and cause investigation of the fire.
Det. Sgt. Steve Otis responded to the scene on January 7, 2019 to conduct an investigation. The structure was completely leveled by the fire and is considered a total loss. This fire is being considered an arson due to the fact the building was vacant, and did not have any power or heat supplied to it at the time the fire was called in.
Anyone having any information is asked to please contact Det. Sgt. Todd Ambroz at the State Police Barracks in Middlesex at 802-229-9191 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the Vermont Arson Tip Award Program at 1-800-32-ARSON (800-322-7766). The Vermont Arson Tip Award Program offers a reward of up to $5000 for information that leads to the arrest of an arsonist.
