A fast-moving early afternoon fire Feb. 2 destroyed a two-story house located at 2996 Lake Rd. in Benson. The blaze left the Phillips family homeless. Four fire departments-Benson, Fair Haven, Orwell, and West Haven-responded to the house fire. Benson Fire Chief Thomas Neumann said a neighbor called in the fire after seeing flames coming out of the Phillips' chimney. Neumann said there were no injuries although firefighters had to raze the house.
