Old Town Fire 

Fire fighters battled a house fire in Old Town Friday morning.The call from a two-story apartment building on Main Street came in just before 6 o’clock.It started as a car fire, but the vehicle was parked next to the porch of the home, so flames quickly spread.Crews from Milford and Orono helped Old Town fire fighters.University of Maine students were living in the rented home at the time. “The tenant of the first floor was just coming back from work and was on his phone and somebody noticed a vehicle fire underneath his. And by the time he got out and moved away from the vehicle, it had extended to the porch, it happened that quickly,” Said Old Town F.D. Lt. Mark Graffam. Lieutenant Graffam says all of the tenants were already outside the building when fire crews arrived.Most of the damage is to the front exterior of the building.We’re told the owner is in Tennessee.The manager is expected on the scene during the day to help out the tenants.
