Old Town Blaze Believed Arson

Updated 7 years ago

Fire fighters were called to a site on South Main Street in Old Town, across from the Red Shield plant.

A storage trailer owned by an electrical contractor was on fire and was burning quickly.

It didn’t take long for fire crews to extinguish the blaze, but we’re told a lot of electrical equipment was destroyed, and officials think they know who was responsible. Thanks to a local business owner who noticed some suspicious activity.

&quot:The owner of Boyles Motorcycle Shop saw some juveniles, and started chasing them off the property. So we’re pretty convinced the fire was set&quot: Said Deputy Chief James Lavoie of the Old Town Fire Department Wednesday.

Authorities will now try to find the kids believed responsible for starting the fire.

Fire marshals will also try to pinpoint the cause.
