Emergency crews from all over the area responded to a fire in Corinth Thursday.

It was first reported around 5pm.

Flames tore through a two story building along Main Street.

Traffic was backed up for about a mile.

The first floor was home to a redemption center.

One man lived in an apartment on the second floor.

Nobody was hurt.

Firefighters worried the heavy winds would carry flames to another building on the property.

Luckily they were able to contain it but the building is a total loss.

Corinth Fire Chief Scott Bragdon said, “We have pin-pointed a cause. They built a building around their outdoor wood boiler and it was attached to this building and it started in that building.”

The building was not insured.

The Red Cross is assisting the one man who was displaced as a result of the fire.

Mutual aid was provided by Charleston, Bradford, Hudson, Kenduskeag, Garland, Glenburn, and Levant.
