VERGENNES — Lt. Gov. Phil Scott knows what it means to have one’s life upended by a fire. A year ago a fire struck his business, DuBois Construction, in Middlesex.
In his keynote address at the Addison County Firefighters Association annual meeting at the Eagles Club in Vergennes last Wednesday evening, Scott shared his personal experience of the dedication and bravery of Vermont firefighters. He recounted the heroic efforts he witnessed as firefighters worked through the night and over the course of several days responding to flare-ups.
