WESTFIELD, Vt. — A fire has destroyed a Vermont condominium building, stranding half a dozen families without housing.

No one was injured in the Thursday night fire in Westfield. WCAX-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2u7O7fs ) firefighters had trouble reaching the site of the blaze and had trouble finding enough water to fight the flames.

The property manager says six of the condos were occupied and now those families need to find a new place to live. He says he’s helping with that process and is thankful firefighters did what they could.

The insurance company is expected at the site Friday. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
