Fire Destroys Priceless Memories

May 13, 2012

NEWPORT CENTER – Late Saturday, fire destroyed the home of Charles Roberts, father of 16-year-old Dustin Roberts who passed away in February after a long battle with cancer.
Firefighters were called to Number 12 Road just past 11 p.m. for a fully engulfed structure fire.
“When we got there, the house was fully involved,” said Kurk Flynn, Newport Center Fire Chief. “We called for extensive mutual-aid from North Troy, Jay, Troy, Irasburg and Newport City.”
Firefighters had the blaze under control in about three hours but remained on the scene until 6 a.m.
