Fire investigated in Sharon

A fire devastated the McLane house at 91 Lent Road in Sharon.

On Tuesday, Aug. 4, at 12:17 a.m. a 911 call was received regarding a fire at 91 Lent Road in Sharon. The Sharon Fire Dept.along with Strafford Fire Dept.and several surrounding fire departments responded.

Upon their arrival at 12:28 a.m. the entire house was engulfed in flames and the roof had already collapsed.

The house, owned by Jeremiah and Anne McLane, has been deemed a total loss. Nobody was home at the time of the blaze so there were no injuries or deaths, police reported.

Once the fire was extinguished the Vermont Dept. of Public Safety Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit was contacted to conduct an origin and cause investigation. But based on the complete devastation and consumption of the entire house, fire investigators were unable to determine the exact area of origin, and what specifically caused
the fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and anyone having any information regarding this incident is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Todd Ambroz at 802-878-7111, or email todd.ambroz@vermont.gov.
