There is a report of a major fire in Barre behind the Allen Lumber building on the south side of the branch of the Winooski, with multiple fire departments responding to the scene. They were first toned at 4:37 a.m., and departments from Barre City, Barre Town, Northfield, Waterbury, Berlin, and Plainfield have responded, according to a report from the scene.
The departments believe the fire is in the office area; crews have not yet contained the fire, but are working to reach it. Smoke is in the area across North Main Street.
We have a reporter and photographer on the way and will update as we have more to report.
