A large fire destroyed much of the Randolph Village Fire Station yesterday morning despite the best efforts of volunteer firefighters. The building located at the intersection of Route 12 and Route 66, caught fire sometime early Tuesday morning, likely beginning in the engine of a rescue pumper truck kept in one of the station’s four bays.
The Vermont State Police’s Fire Investigation Unit estimate damages between $750,000 and $1 million dollars. The station will operate in the interim out of the village’s highway garage.
The Randolph Town Manager’s Office is asking nearby departments with equipment to offer the station, or anyone interested in making a donation to call 802-728-5433.
