Fire Destroys Home on Sullivan Slough Rd.

A home at 4801 Sullivan Slough Road, just south of Burlington, was destroyed by fire early this afternoon.

Fire Chief Matt Trexel says it appears to have started in an outdoor wood-burner and spread to the inside of the home…

“When we arrived at the scene we found it engulfed in fire. It’s been an exterior fire attack since we have been here. There is only one person who lives here and he wasn’t home at the time. There was no one to rescue and no one hurt.”

This is the third fire in that area recently, but Trexel says he’s not suspicious…

“They are totally unrelated. I’m pretty sure the cause of this one will be accidental.”
