A seasonal vacation home in Vermont owned by a Westport couple has been severely damaged by fire, according to a local newspaper.
The Caldedonian-Record said the second floor of the Cape-style home in Peacham, Vt., was gutted in Tuesday’s blaze with some damage to the first floor.
The home was unoccupied at the time, the newspaper said. A passerby noticed smoke coming from the attic and turned in the alarm.
The report quoted Peacham Fire Chief Jeff Berwick as saying the cause of the fire is undetermined, but there is no reason to believe it was suspicious.
The newspaper said the residence is a seasonal home owned by David and Mindy Mooney of Westport.
