PALMYRA — A house, garage and two campers in Palmyra were destroyed by fire early Thursday after flames consumed one of the campers and then spread, according to officials.

No one was injured in the incident that was reported at about 3:30 a.m. as a camper fire at 1003 Warren Hill Road, Chief Charles Gould of the Hartland Fire Department said.

Firefighters who arrived first at the blaze called for assistance from other fire departments in the region.

No one was living at the house, but a couple living above the garage was able to escape, Gould said. It was not clear Thursday if the couple were renting the space or owned the property.

It took several hours to bring the fire under control. Firefighters had a brief problem with the water supply, Gould said, but the main concern was a shortage of manpower — a common issue in the region for volunteer departments.

The cause of the fire was not clear Thursday, according to Gould, and the Office of State Fire Marshal is investigating the blaze.

Chief Donald Chute of the Palmyra Fire Department could not be reached Thursday for comment.

While Palmyra has a fire chief, it does not have its own fire department and, instead, contracts with Hartland, Newport, Pittsfield and St. Albans for coverage.

Firefighters from Canaan, Corinna, Detroit, Pittsfield and St. Albans responded to the blaze.
