Structure Fire



Vt. State Police - 4:10 pm Tue Jun 1st, 2010

On 5/31/10 at approx. 2:31 pm Barre Fire and Police Department received several calls about a fire at 47 North Main Street in Barre.

When the Fire Department arrived they advised there were flames coming out of the third floor windows on the Main Street side of the building. Barre City Fire Fighters made entry into the building and quickly called for additional departments to respond. The damage was contained to the upper levels of the building. The roof of the building collapsed and the majority of the third floor was destroyed. Structural engineers had been called into inspect the building and survey the damage.
The Barre City Fire Department contacted the Vermont State Police and requested an Origin and Cause fire investigation be conducted. Fire Investigators from the Vermont State Police and Division of Fire and Safety responded to the scene on 6/1/2010 and were there for most of the day.
The state police investigation has shown the fire was intentionally set and the investigation is on-going. The fire began during the day and shortly after the Memorial Day Parade ended. The State Police is asking anyone with information or may have seen anyone in the building to call the Vermont Arson Tip Award Program at 1-800-32 ARSON.
No one was hurt in the fire. At one point 10 fire departments were called in to fight the fire. Until a structural inspection of the building is completed the exact amount of dollar damage is unknown. At this time damages are estimated over $200,000.00.
