SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 01/15/2017 at 0057 hours The Brighton Volunteer Fire

Department responded to a report of a structure fire at the above location. The

fire department arrived to discover the structure, in this case was two mobile

homes joined together and both were fully engulfed. There were 4 subjects

staying in the house at the time of the fire and all were able to make it out

safely. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire initially and clear

from the scene but subsequently had to return at approximately 1130 hours for a

rekindle. Both mobile homes were a total loss. The Brighton Fire Chief called

the Department of Public Safety Fire Investigation requesting an origin and

cause investigation be conducted. The fire chief had concerns with circumstances

present prior to the fire and therefore requested an investigation.

 

On 01/05/17 The Brighton Assistant Chief Walt Driscoll contacted the Department of Children and Families with concerns for the welfare of the children residing in this house. The Assistant Chief had learned the house was not equipped with working smoke or CO detectors. He had also learned there had been some electrical issues at the house that involved flickering lights. Based on this information he was concerned with the welfare of the children and contacted DCF. Investigators from DCF along with Investigator Tim Angell from the Division of Fire Safety conducted an inspection of the home. Investigator Angell discovered there were no working smoke or CO detectors within the house. Investigator Angell also observed several other areas of concern pertaining to power in the house. Investigator Angell informed the home owners they needed to install working smoke and CO detectors and make arrangements for an electrician to inspect the house. Investigator Angell requested that the owners provide photographic proof to him the detectors had been installed. This installation had been completed and proof was provided to Investigator Angell.

 

On the morning of the fire, the resident staying at the house, Ronald Horton was watching the 3 minor children when he was awakened by the sound of a smoke detector going off. Once awake, he observed heavy fire conditions present in the portion of the trailer that was no longer in use. HE was then able to wake the children and remove them from the house prior to the building becoming fully engulfed in flames.

 

It is clear in this case had the Brighton Assistant Fire Chief not reached out to vocalize his concerns regarding the welfare of these children the outcome could have been much worse. Investigator Angell through his inspection and required follow up resulted in smoke and CO detectors being installed in the home. These detectors going off ultimately resulted in the saving of four lives on this date. These individuals should be commended for their hard work, dedication and commitment to public safety.

 

This should be a remind for us all of the importance of properly installed and working smoke and  CO detectors.

(17A100231). Prior to arriving on scene the State Police received two separate calls of motor vehicle crashes in the same area of the mattress.  It was learned that traffic was backing up as south bound vehicles attempted to avoid the mattress.  There were two separate incidents where vehicles collided causing minor damage as a result of the slowing traffic.  There were no injuries reported in the collisions.  Two vehicles had to be towed from the scenes due to front end damage.  The driver of the vehicle that lost the mattress received a traffic ticket for having an unsecure load.  Traffic was slowed in the area of the Winooski River Bridge as a result of the mattress and subsequent crashes.
