Circle K in Ascutney Burglarized & Structure Fire, Sunoco Damaged

On this date at approximately 0230 AM the Ascutney Fire Department responded for a report of a structure fire located at the Circle K gas station in Ascutney, VT. The business was closed for the night when the fire started. When the Fire Department arrived they found fire and heavy smoke coming from the west side of the structure.

At this time it does appear that the building was burglarized. The power, internet and cable lines was intentionally cut to the business at the utility pole. The front doors of the business were damaged where the person(s) entered the building. The business sustained substantial damage due to the fire. 

A second business, the Sunoco gas station located across the street also sustained damage to the phone, internet and cable lines. The lines appear to have been intentionally cut as well, however no entry was gained into the business. The business was able to remain open on Wednesday.

The incident is under investigation. Any person with information is asked to call the Vermont State Police BCI Division, Vermont State Police Arson Investigation Unit or the Weathersfield Police Department.

Mutual Aid Departments from Golden Cross Ambulance, Weathersfield Fire, Hartland Fire, Reading Fire, Windsor Fire, West Windsor Fire, Springfield Fire, Claremont Fire and Cornish Fire responded to assist at the scene.
