Firefighters rescue dog from Williston condo fire

The Williston Fire Department extinguished a fire in a Cedar Lane condominium Saturday morning after a neighbor called 911 reporting smoke coming out of a second-story window.
No one was in the house at the time of the fire, but firefighters rescued a 15-year-old black Labrador retriever from the smoke-filled home.
The dog was treated for smoke inhalation, transported to a local veterinary clinic and is expected to make a full recovery, the Williston Fire Department reported.

The department called for mutual aid from fire departments in South Burlington, Burlington, Richmond, Essex Junction and Essex Town. The Williston Police Department also responded.

The Williston Fire Department does not consider the fire suspicious. It is believed to be electrical.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
