Woodstock resident Hal De Bona took his dog for a walk around 6 a.m. Monday and saw the normally quiet downtown streets crawling with traffic as fire crews battled a fire that started in the wee hours in two adjacent Central Street buildings that housed a family residence, the Pi Brick Oven Trattoria, an artists gallery and the offices of the 165-year-old Vermont Standard newspaper. The former NBC advertising salesman grabbed his iPhone and started capturing images of the smoke, flames and the first responders battling them. The fire remains under investigation.
