Apartment Building Catches Fire in Waterville 

Fire fighters worked around some tight spaces in Waterville Monday night.Crews were called to Pleasant Street at 7:30 for reports of smoke in the third floor apartment.When they arrived, smoke was pouring from the top of the building.The seven occupants of the building were evacuated, one had to be taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.Those displaced by the fire do have places to go.”They were brought across the street to a church to keep warm,” Said the Fire Chief for Waterville and Winslow, David LaFountain. “And I was told by the Red Cross that they’ve already gotten alternative arraignments for tonight, and that they’d be working with them tomorrow to see what they could do for ’em.”No fire fighters were injured in the blaze, though the tight conditions in downtown Waterville made it difficult to bring the water to the fire.The fire marshal’s office was on scene Monday, and says that the fire is not being considered suspicious.There has been no word yet on a cause.
