A vehicle came loose off a moving cargo trailer and hit an Old North End home Monday evening, according to the Burlington Fire Department officials.
It happened at around 6:15 on the corner of Lafountain Street and Manhattan Drive.
“The vehicle had been secured to the private trailer by a ratcheting style tie down strap that snapped, allowing the vehicle to leave the trailer; coming to a rest on the Manhattan Drive side of the house after penetrating an exterior wall,” according to a press release sent by the fire department.
The house was structurally stable, fire officials say, even though the exterior brick wall was heavily damaged and two structural beams were compromised.
A three season porch was deemed structurally unstable.
No injures were reported.
