Fire Destroys Home in Kenduskeag 

A man in Kenduskeag lost everything he owns today when his mobile home went up in flames. Investigators are trying to figure out what started the fire this afternoon on Townhouse Road. The homeowner was at work at the time. Crews from Levant were closest to the area and arrived first, followed by Kenduskeag firefighters. Lieutenant Steve Burgess says a fire like this makes for a tough way to start the new year.”It is for the homeowner. I hate to see this. You know Christmas time, New Year’s. It’s a bad way time for this to happen.”Burgess says the fire’s not considered suspicious but the Fire Marshal’s office was called in to investigate. We’re told several pets were inside the home and firefighters were trying to figure out if any of them survived.
