Fire Destroys Auto Shop 

A fire in Kenduskeag Friday afternoon destroyed an auto shop.It happened just after 12:30p.m. at Rick’s Auto Sales and Service on Townhouse Road.According to Lt. Steve Burgess with the Levan Fire Department, Friday’s blaze started in a car being worked on inside the shop. The worker attempted to put the fire out, but it became too much for him to handle.When fire crews arrived flames were coming from the roof and doors of the building.Burgess says there were some difficulties getting the fire out, ” The steel roof on the building obviously the vehicles in the yard, some of those were actually on fire when we arrived so we had to put those out before we could get to the building, and obviously the car that was in the building at the time.”The worker inside at the time got out safely.No word yet on what caused the fire.
