Clifton fire

Fire investigators are trying to find the cause of an early morning fire that destroyed a home in Clifton.

The blaze erupted on the Scott Point Road on Chemo Pond just before one oclock this morning.

Fire officials say no one had been living in the home since the owners passed away last year.

Their sons had been caring for the home.

Fire crews from several communities responded and had to battle with the cold along with the flames.

We're told the home was heated and had electricity.

An investigator from the Fire Marshal's office was on the scene today trying to find the cause.

Police chase

A high speed police chase has landed a Cherryfield man behind bars.

It all started around 9:45 last night when a state trooper tried to stop 27 year old Alonzo Harvey for speeding on route one in Harrington.

They say Harvey took off and led the trooper down several roads at a high rate of speed.

He also turned off his headlights at one point.

It finally ended when they say Harvey drove his Mitsubishi Eclipse down a dead end road where he ditched the car.

He fled into some woods, but a police dog managed to find him hiding behind a tree about three miles away.

Harvey was arrested and is now facing numerous charges including criminal speeding, eluding an officer and possession of marijuana.
