FIRE UPDATES

MALONE — A fire that destroyed a trailer at 14 Valley Road is under investigation by State Police.

“When we got there, we saw smoke coming from the eaves of the structure and some flames visible from the inside,” Malone Callfiremen Chief Brian Gokey said. “The damage had already been done to the trailer.”

Firemen extinguished the fire “fairly quickly,” Gokey said.

The residence is owned by Edith Gallien of Constable, according to the Franklin County Real Property Tax Service office.

Gokey said he could not release the name of the tenant but did say only one person was living in the home.

Two passers-by made the initial call, alerting authorities to the blaze, he said.

Constable and Burke fire departments responded to the fire site with Bangor standing by.

Gokey was unsure if the owner of the property had insurance.

The Malone Callfiremen were back in service at 11:17 p.m. Friday.

AuSABLE — The cause of Friday’s garage fire at 205 Grove St. is still under investigation.

”At this point, it’s still undetermined,” Director of Clinton County Emergency Services Eric Day said Saturday afternoon.

”The garage is pretty heavily damaged so there’s not much to work with,” he said.

Homeowner Michael LeCuyer suffered burns from the fire and was transferred to Fletcher Allen from CVPH Medical Center Friday.

LeCuyer was listed in fair condition at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington Saturday afternoon.
