Fire crews from several neighboring towns were called to the store, located at the intersection of Rt.7 and Rt.9
Dixmont fire Chief James Dunnivan says when crews arrived, flames and smoke could be seen billowing out of the top floor apartment.
The corner store, below, was not heavily damaged in the fire, but the buildings owner, Richard Macintosh, says the manager did not have insurance.
No one was living in the apartment, and no one was hurt in the fire.
Macintosh says he’s owned the building for the last few years, but just recently leased it to the store’s manager.
He says it’s too early to tell what the future holds for the building and store.
There is no word on a cause.
