CHARLOTTE, Vt. - The windy weather on Monday caused a backyard burn to get out of control in Charlotte.

Crews from three departments were called to Spear Street around 3:30 p.m.

They were able to put it out using compressed foam, saving a nearby barn.

Fire leaders FOX 44 and ABC 22 that it was an unpermitted burn and the owners weren't at home.
