    BENNINGTON - The state says it plans to fine two Bennington Rural firefighters for their part in lighting a camper on fire.

    Both were at an annual "Mudder's day" mud-bogging event in May. In the finale, a camper was set on fire while a vehicle drove through it. It was seen on YouTube, where members of the department could be seen putting out the fire.

    The firefighters, 28-year-old Ryan Nystrom and 35-year-old Roger Hughes, told the Bennington Banner they were the ones who set the fire, believing any permits necessary were in place.

    They were among 15 firefighters who were temporarily suspended from the department because they didn't have the proper permits.
