Fire Destroys Lessard Home

Authorities say a fire has destroyed the home of Dave Matthews Band bass player Stefan Lessard.

The 33-year-old and his son escaped from the house unharmed after they heard a "crackling" in the kitchen.

Fire officials say the fire is being investigated but is believed to have started outside the cedar shake home. Arson or foul play is not suspected.

While there is no estimate on the damage, the house and its contents were considered a total loss.

County records show Lessard purchased the 6-acre farm estate in December 2003. The house, built in 2001, was last assessed at $880,000.
