Castleton and Poultney Fire Departments responded to a reported
structure fire at 751 Washington Street in Fair Haven, Vt.
Fire investigators from the Vermont State Police, as well as
from the Division of Fire Safety, were requested shortly thereafter
for an origin and cause investigation.

means. The owners of the business, Ed and Tammy Davis, age 49 and
46 respectively, were later found to be involved with the fire and
subsequently charged with Arson. They were cited to appear in
Rutland County District Court on May 20, 2013.
