Firefighters from Woodstock, Hartland and Debec responded to a fire Saturday night at the historic Sheriff Winslow House in Upper Woodstock. 

The River Valley Sun reports the fire broke out early in the evening in the recently renovated one-level addition to the home. The original two-and-a-half storey structure was built in the 1880s. 

An elderly couple who lived in the attached section escaped unharmed. Firefighters remained at the scene until early Sunday.

The addition was gutted by the fire and the couple lost all their belongings. There was extensive damage to the original house.
