Tuesday May 25 at 3 pm, the Corinth Fire Department responded to a report of a residential fire at 642 Camp Munn Road, Corinth. Upon arrival the residence was observed to be fully involved, and it was learned from two of the residents that there was one occupant still inside. Due to the intensity and size of the fire, members of the fire department were unable to enter the residence. When the fire was extinguished, the unaccounted-for occupant was found deceased inside the residence.
Members of the Vermont State Police Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit conducted an investigation into the cause and origin of the fire and determined that the fire was not suspicious in nature. The fire started on the front porch in the area of a can used for discarded smoking materials.
The two individuals who were able to escape the fire were transported to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for treatment. Diane Thurber (56) was airlifted by DART from the scene to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) and was later transferred to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA for further treatment. Her condition is unknown at this time. Ryan Goodwin (age 35) was transported by ambulance to DHMC and treated for his injuries. Ryan is in stable condition; details of his injuries are unknown at this time.
The victim is a 21-year-old man who lived in the home. His identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The decedent was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Burlington, and the cause of death is pending autopsy.
