CAMPTON - A historic, well-known inn built in 1935 has been destroyed by a multi-alarm fire.

Flames broke out inside the Armont Inn on Ellsworth Hill Road just after 4:30 Wednesday morning. A neighbor and Campton police officer were able to rescue the elderly owner who was inside the building.

The man is expected to be OK, neighbors said.

The flames were so intense, crews were forced to retreat. The fast-moving flames and heat were the equivalent of 5 alarms, Campton fire officials said.

60 firefighters and more than two dozen trucks were used to knock down the flames.

The cause is under investigation. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Campton-Thornton Fire Department or the Campton Police Department.
