SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

 

On August 04, 2022, at approximately 11:03 AM the Greensboro Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at a multi-family residence on Main Street in Greensboro.  Fire crews from several area departments worked to extinguish the fire.  All occupants were able to exit the residence safely and no injuries were reported.

 

As part of Fire Chief David Brochu’s assessment of the scene he contacted the Department of Public Safety Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit and requested assistance in determining the origin and cause of the fire event.  Members of the Department of Public Safety Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit responded to the fire scene later that morning and began a scene examination.  Due to the extent of the fire damage only an area of origin at the 1st floor of the residence could be determined.  The cause of the fire will remain undetermined, but is not considered to be the result of direct human involvement.

 

Anyone with information about this fire event is asked to contact the Vermont State Police in Derby at (802)334-8881.
