UPDATE: Fire at Red Barn Motel in Milbridge 

Fire crews from four towns responded to a fire at a Milbridge business today.

The call came in just after 10 this morning.

The initial call indicated that there was fire in one of the rooms of the red barn motel.

But the flames then spread to other parts of the building.

Milbridge’s fire chief says it’s a total loss.

He tells it’s the older of two buildings that make up the motel and wasn’t occupied.

He says it was being renovated and workers were inside painting before the fire broke out.

The other building was not damaged and remains occupied.

The motel is insured.

The fire marshal’s office will investigate.
