Fire Strikes Brewer Home 

Fire crews in Brewer had their hands full containing a home fire Tuesday night.The fire broke out on Gibbons Court, which is behind the old police station off of South Main Street.Several calls came in from neighbors and the Brewer Fire Department arrived there around 10:30 Tuesday evening.Brewer was on the scene and they did have one truck on hand from Bangor.It seemed to those on hand that the fire was going before those initial calls came in, and, because of the location, fighting the blaze was difficult. “It had a good head start on us,” Said Lt. Dennis Kinkham of the BFD. “We were operating from behind the eight ball right off the bat. We’ve got exposures: houses on both sides, that have some minor damage, but these people will be able to stay in their houses tonight. The only people displaced are the people that lived here.”Crews were there for about four hours until they cleared the scene at about 2:30 Wednesday morning.There has been no word yet on if the state fire marshal’s office will be called in to investigate.
