WINTERPORT – Fire officials said they’ll never know the cause of a fire that destroyed a home in Winterport.
The blaze in the old single wide trailer was reported on North Maine Road around 12:30 a.m. Monday.
Fire Chief Tom Doe stated one man was living in the home. He awoke to discover the trailer was on fire and managed to make it out.
The trailer was engulfed in flames by the time the fire fire crews arrived on the scene. Chief Doe added that it was leveled and because of the amount of damage there’s no way of determining how the fire started.
He also said the resident was lucky to make it out because there wasn’t any working smoke detectors.
