ORONO – An Orono house is a total loss after a fire tore through the building Sunday.
Orono Fire Chief Geoff Low said they were called to Gould Road around 2:20 p.m., and found the fire had spread to a significant portion of the building.
The home is located in the area of Pushaw Lake.
Crews said the one resident home at the time did make it out safely and there were not pets in the home.
“There was a resident in the building. He was home when the fire started. We believe he’s the one that actually made the call. He was not injured,” said Chief Low.
About four neighboring departments came in to help put out the fire.
No word yet on a cause.
