Officials: Fire at Vermont apartment house kills 2 pets, displaces several people


RUTLAND, Vermont — Fire officials say a dog and cat were killed and at least eight people were displaced in a fire at a Vermont apartment house.

It happened at around 5 p.m. Monday at a four-unit apartment house on North Main Street in Rutland.

Brad LaFaso, chief of operations for the Rutland Fire Department, says the blaze was sparked by a candle with incense that was left unattended for five to 10 minutes.

No one was injured, but officials say several people were displaced.

Officials say two people were taken from the scene in handcuffs. Police haven't said if they are facing any charges.
