RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - Officials say an early-morning blaze severely damaged a Vermont fire station and destroyed at least one engine.

The blaze broke out at about 6:15 a.m. Monday at Randolph’s volunteer firehouse.

Randolph Village Fire Chief Jay Collette says he was “awe-struck” at having to battle a fire at his own station. He says a four-year-old fire engine was lost in the fire.

A state fire investigator says the fire appears to have been caused by an electrical problem in a pumper truck and isn’t considered suspicious. Officials say it may have caused as much as $1 million in damage.
