Fire in Bucksport Deemed a Close Call 

Bucksport crews were called out at about 1 o’clock Tuesday morning to the Williams Orchard Road, off Route 15.

Fire fighters from Orrington and Orland were also called in to help.

Bucksport’s Assistant Fire Chief Mike Denning says the fire began in a second floor bedroom, and was caused by a discarded cigarette.

Two people were inside the home when the blaze broke out. Denning says they were lucky to make it out safely considering the home had no working smoke detectors.
