3 Record Drive Mobile Home Fire Press Release


At 11:46pm on August 8, 2016 the Brattleboro Fire Department responded to 3 Record Drive for a mobile home fire with occupants trapped. Two of the four occupants in the home at the time of the fire perished. Glen Euber, age 42 and Michelle Blake, age 52 were both found upstairs on the main living level after firefighters extinguished the fire that destroyed their mobile home. Neither was able to escape the fire and were dead at the scene.

The other two occupants, Carroll Page, age 68 and Sean Stoltz, age 27, both lived in the lower level of the home and were able to escape safely. Stoltz received a second degree burn to the back of his neck and was transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital by Rescue Inc for treatment.

The Brattleboro Fire Department Investigation Team, Brattleboro Police, VT State Police Fire Investigation Unit and the VT Division of Fire Safety worked jointly to determine the origin and cause of the fire. It has been concluded that the fire started in a front bedroom though the cause is undetermined. The investigation is now completed.

There have been eight deaths caused by fire in Vermont so far this year. The Brattleboro Fire Department would like to remind and encourage everyone to install and maintain working smoke detectors in all levels of your home. They provide early warning in case of a fire to help you escape before it is too late.
