Burned-out trucks lie in the remains of a fire-damaged building owned by Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, Monday, Jan. 9, 2012, in Middlesex.

(Host) Lt. Governor Phil Scott is thanking the Vermonters who offered him support after a fire destroyed the building that housed his business, DuBois Construction in Middlesex.

Scott says friends, colleagues, and even some of his competitors have expressed their condolences and offered help.

He says he's "honored and humbled" by the support.

The cause of the fire that destroyed DuBois construction's office and garage on Friday night has not been determined, but it is not considered suspicious. There were no injuries.

Scott says the operation that he has run with his cousin for 26 years was insured.

He says they should be able to rebuild and stay in business.
