Three families are displaced after a fire tore through their apartment building Thursday night. The fire took a couple of hours to put out after responding crews encountered issues including cold weather and an extreme drop in water pressure. Fortunately, no one was injured, but fire officials say that the building is a complete loss. Crews from Winooski, Mallets Bay, and St. Michaels all responded to fight the blaze. Due to the fire, Winooski Fire Chief David Bergeron says that Mallets Bay Avenue from West Spring Street to Union Street will be closed this morning as crews will be at the scene working on the building.
