Gov. LePage to Tour Fire Damage in Lewiston

Updated 11 months ago

Maine Gov. Paul LePage plans to get a firsthand look at fire damage in his native Lewiston. The governor is traveling to Maine’s second-largest city on Tuesday to tour damaged buildings after three fires destroyed nine buildings and left more than 180 people homeless. LePage says he’s familiar with buildings and neighborhood from his youth. He commended firefighters and first responders and said he’s committed to working with the city to get help for those who need it. Two 12-year-old boys have been charged with setting two of the fires. The state fire marshal’s office continues to investigate the third fire, which was doused Monday morning.
