NORWICH, Vermont — Firefighters say a fire that destroyed a home in Norwich, Vermont was caused by hot ashes from a wood stove that were placed in a shed.
Fire Chief Stephen Leinoff said the home, which caught on fire Wednesday night, is a total loss.
No one was hurt.
Leinoff said the cold and a steep, icy driveway made fighting the fire difficult. A power line also fell down directly in front of the house soon after firefighters arrived.
