Savoy's 'Dragon House' Burns Down
Staff Reports On: 11:58PM / Monday October 17, 2011

Remnants of the burned Dragon House.
SAVOY, Mass. — The Dragon House, a local landmark burned down over the weekend

The odd-shaped building topped with a dragon head chimney was the home of the late Roger Davis, also known as Witch Vortex, a noted recluse, teacher and handyman. Davis' wooden statues of deities were featured in 2007 in Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art's "The Believers" exhibition.

Davis, who died in January at age 74, had constructed the buildings and grounds over 20 years but reportedly had not lived there in several years. There was no electricity or modern conveniences on the property.

Savoy Fire Department was assisted by a number of local fire departments in putting out the blaze. A call to the department on Monday was not immediately returned.

SAVOY, Mass. — Firefighters snuffed out Friday what could have been a dangerous fire.

North Adams Woman Charge With Trafficking
By: Staff Reports On: 04:32PM / Friday May 07, 2010

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A North Adams woman was arraigned Friday morning in Berkshire Superior Court on a drug charge. 

Eden J. Lemaire, 20, of Walnut Street had not-guilty pleas entered on her behalf on single counts of trafficking in Oxycontin and conspiracy to violate drug laws.

She appeared before Judge John A. Agostini, who released her on personal recognizance.

The charges stem from the execution of a search warrant at the Willows Motel in Williamstown on April 2, 2010. The investigation was conducted by members of the Adams, North Adams and Williamstown police departments and state troopers assigned to the district attorney's office, members of the Berkshire County Drug Task Force.

Bear in Air Locates Savoy Hunter
By: Tammy Daniels On: 05:39PM / Friday December 04, 2009

The Massachusetts State Police Air Wing last night located a hunter who had gone missing in a forest in Savoy.

A state police helicopter crew found the hunter, a 62-year-old Savoy man, at 10:50 p.m. in a wooded area by using the aircraft's forward-looking infrared camera. The hunter was located about one-third of a mile from the point where he had entered the woods almost nine hours earlier.

The helicopter crew directed state police ground units to the hunter's location. Troopers on the ground and local firefighters determined that he had suffered potentially serious injuries but was conscious and appeared to be in stable condition. The helicopter crew illuminated the scene using a high-powered searchlight mounted under the nose of the aircraft while rescue personnel removed the hunter to an ambulance for transport to an area hospital.

State Police had begun searching for the hunter at 5:50 p.m., when his wife called the barracks in Cheshire to report him missing. She told troopers he had entered the woods at about 2 p.m. wearing fluorescent orange clothing and was usually home by dark. Troopers and state police dogs began a ground search. At approximately 10 p.m., the Air Wing unit was dispatched from its base in Westover and located the hunter less than an hour later.

State police are not releasing the hunter's name or the nature of his injuries at this time.
