MIDDLEBURY — Folks driving south on Route 7 Tuesday from New Haven into Middlebury were doing a double-take as they passed near Smart Move Storage, north of the Exchange Street intersection. A huge, smoke-free flame was shooting from the Vermont Gas gate station, in what company officials were calling a controlled burn related to an ongoing inspection of the Addison Natural Gas Project pipeline.
