ORONO – An electrical failure is being blamed for a fire that destroyed a home in Orono Sunday afternoon.
Orono Fire Chief Geoff Low said fire crews were called to Gould Road around 2:20 p.m. and found that the fire had spread to a significant portion of the building.
“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,” Low said.
Four neighboring departments helped put out the fire.
