Vt. Town Loses Entire Police Fleet in Fire

November 14, 2014

The Town of Thetford, Vt., lost three police vehicles in an early morning fire last month in a fire described as suspicious by the Vermont State Police investigator handling the case.

The burned-out cars were towed away from the agency, which serves 2,600 residents, following the Oct. 17 fire. The damage was estimated at $100,000, reports WPTZ.

Nearby towns are lending cars to Thetford, so the agency can provide patrol coverage.

    Your geography is horrible, Burlington Vt. is on the west side of the state (Lake Champlain) while Thetford Is on the Connecticut River or the East side of the state. Granted it's a small State but east is East and West is still West.
