    fire was deliberate



    FAIR HAVEN — Vermont State Police fire said someone intentionally set a fire that destroyed a Fair Haven house early Saturday.

    The fire at an unoccupied house on Park Avenue in Fair Haven was reported by a passing motorist at about 3:30 a.m.

    The house was engulfed in flames when Fair Haven firefighters arrived and could not be saved, police said.

    Damage was estimated at more than $50,000.

    Fair Haven firefighters requested a detective from State Police Fire Investigation Unit and an investigator with the Division of Fire Safety, who examined the remains of the house.

    They concluded the blaze was a criminal act of arson, police said.

    Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call the Vermont arson tip line at 1-800-32-ARSON or the Fair Haven Police Department.

    A $5,000 reward has been offered for information that leads to an arrest.
