Crews Battle Bangor House Fire 

Quick work by crews kept fire from destroying a house in Bangor today…The 911 call came in around 4 p-m that there was a fire in the bedroom of a home on outer Essex Street…By the time crews arrived, heavy fire was showing from two windows…Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack, and although the flames damaged the second floor and the attack, they stopped it there…Assistant Bangor Fire Chief Darrell Cyr says the fire presented some challenges, but crews did an excellent job…<"it's outside the hydrant district, but this was an all hands, so we had tankers coming in, which worked very well."bite 1: "the amount of fire we had when we showed up, they did a really good job of fighting the fire and knocking it down.">Tankers were called in from Glenburn and the Air National Guard Base…Cyr says the family won’t be able to stay in the home for a while because of the damage to the second story, but they *do* have a place to stay.No word yet on what caused the fire.
