Fire Destroys Stockton Springs Auto Garage 

A fire in Stockton Springs Tuesday morning destroyed an auto garage.It happened just before 9:00 at Mark’s Garage on Route 1.Several employees were inside when it started, but were able to escape without any injuries.Firefighters say it spread so quickly, it was too dangerous for them to go inside. “Where it’s an open building and you have a truss roof, once it gets in the roof and the trusses you cannot safely send personnel inside because the roof comes down fast, and you don’t know it’s coming down until it’s on top of you,” said Asst. Fire Chief Vern Thompson of the Stockton Springs Fire Department.The state Fire Marshal was called to help determine a cause.We’re told the garage owner has insurance.
