INCIDENT: Vehicle Fire


VICTIM: Steven Hunter
AGE:  28
CITY, STATE OF RESIDENCE: Wheelock, VT

VICTIM: James Stone
AGE:  26
CITY, STATE OF RESIDENCE: St. Johnsbury, VT

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On 02/20/18, at approximately 0028 hours, St Johnsbury Fire Department responded
to a report of several vehicles on fire in the parking lot of Brinks Auto
located at 2483 Portland St in St. Johnsbury. Upon arrival, fire personnel
encountered two pickup trucks engulfed in flames. The vehicles were later
identified as a 2001 Chevrolet pickup registered to Steven Hunter of Wheelock
and a 2007 Dodge pickup registered to James Stone of St. Johnsbury.

After the vehicles were extinguished, St. Johnsbury Fire Chief Troy Ruggles
contacted the Vermont State Police to request assistance from the VT Department
of Public Safety Fire Investigation Unit for an origin and cause investigation.

On 02/20/18, at approximately 0900 hours, investigators from the DPS Fire Investigation Unit conducted an on-scene investigation of both vehicles. Through the investigation it was determined that both vehicles had been parked in the parking lot since 02/19/18. Employees left the area at approximately 1800 hours on 02/19/18 and a passerby reported the fire at approximately 0028 hours on 02/20/18.

The fire appears to have originated in the engine compartment of the 2001 Chevrolet and after the engine compartment and passenger compartment were fully engulfed the fire extended to the 2007 Dodge that was parked alongside.

Both vehicles are considered a total loss. No person(s) were injured in the fire.

The case remains under investigation and anyone who may have been traveling along US RTE 2/Portland Street around midnight and may have witnessed the fire or anything suspicous,  is asked to contact Investigators from the Fire Investigation Unit throught the State Police Barracks at 802-748-3111.

SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

 

               On 2/20/18 at approximately 11:20 AM the Franklin County Sheriff Department contacted the state police and requested assistance dealing with an incident at the Bellows Free Academy (BFA) in Fairfax.  The sheriff deputy was seeking assistance involving a threatening Facebook message that a female student had received.  The deputy advised the that the school administrators had seen the Facebook message and made the decision to place the school in "lock down" before sending all the students home early.  Uniform state troopers as well as state police detectives responded to the school.    

 

                The juvenile female who received the threatening Facebook message, causing the school to be locked down, was off campus at another location when she reportedly received the message.  The female student who received the threatening message forwarded the message to another student who in turn notified school administrators.  During the course of the investigation state police detectives learned that the juvenile female, who the message was directed toward, had created the threatening message and sent it to herself from a fictitious social media account.
