Gardiner Fire 

A home in West Gardiner was nearly destroyed Thursday morning when flames erupted in a workshop and storage trailer located near their mobile home on the Highland Road.

Kathy and Walter Trask say they were just finishing delivering that morning’s newspapers when they saw fire trucks heading toward their home.

The flames did start to spread towards the back of their trailer, but fire crews managed to snuff it out before the home was destroyed.

The Trasks think the fire may have started in a woodstove that was located in the storage trailer.
