Updated 4 months ago

SABATTUS, Maine (AP) — The Sabattus Fire Department spent the weekend battling two fires that broke out within about an hour of each other.

Chief Mark Veilleux says crews were called to a home one Shore Drive at around 3:40 p.m. Sunday.

Veilleux tells the Sun Journal, the homeowner arrived to find her house filled with smoke.

Veilleux says it appears to be accidental and possibly electric in nature.

While still on scene at Shore Drive, Veilleux said one of his firefighters was on his way to the station when he saw smoke coming from a home on High Street and called it in.

No one was in the home but firefighters rescued a family dog.

There were no injuries.

Both fires remain under investigation.
