Wildfire Extinguished

Updated 6 years ago

Forest rangers say a fire in Addison Tuesday that got out of control and burned 44 acres was probably set to help hunters.

Rangers are still investigating the fire.

But Kent Nelson with the Maine forest service says it looks like the fire was started to burn off dry grass and highlight vegetation to attract deer.

Rangers are keeping an eye on the area today to make sure the fire doesn’t re-ignite.

Helicopters dropped 25 buckets of water on the flames and authorities patrolled the area throughout the night.
