Early Morning Fire in Hermon 

Residents on the Bog road in Hermon awoke early Tuesday morning to explosions and a fire.They heard the explosion of a propane tank in the attached garage, and called the fire department a little before five o’clock Tuesday morning.Hermon crews arrived on the scene quickly, and with mutual aid from other departments had the flames under control in about an hour’s time.Both residents made it out of the house safely, and because of the quick response, the house should be spared.The cause of the fire is unknown at this point but Chief Willis said that he will do some preliminary investigation and then call in the fire marshal’s office.
