LINCOLN – A Lincoln family was displaced after their home caught fire early Thursday morning.
According to Lincoln Fire Captain Jon Spearin, firefighters from seven departments were called to 67 Lee Road just before 1:00 Thursday morning for a house fire.
We’re told when crews arrived, they found heavy fire on the second floor of the home.
Spearin said firefighters spent six hours fighting the fire, which ultimately left the home significantly damaged.
According to Spearin, one of the residents had to be taken to the hospital for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
Spearin said heat and humidity made fighting the blaze difficult, and one firefighter was hospitalized for heat exhaustion and later released.
The Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating what caused the fire, but Spearin told us it did not appear to be suspicious.
