ELLSWORTH – It was around eleven Thursday morning when a fire destroyed a garage and damaged the adjacent house on Graham Lake.
Firefighters from several surrounding towns quickly knocked down the fire, but not before it gutted the garage and destroyed tens of thousand of dollars worth of tools and equipment.
“I was at the State Street Store and I heard the trucks go. And I didn’t know where they were headed. You know, and as I kept coming this way, you know, I noticed the smoke in the sky. And I noticed it was in the general vicinity of here and, unfortunately it was.” said home owner Chip Archer.
The structures were insured. Now, while fire officials investigate the cause, Archer said he’ll be postponing a planned trip to Florida.
