GUILFORD—Thanks to Phys Ed and Health Teacher Scheryl Allen and Piscataquis Community Elementary School there are now forty more potential lifesavers in the area. All sixth grade students were given an opportunity to complete CPR training and become certified in American Heart Association Child CPR/AED . Those who completed training, pictured here with Mrs. Allen, were recognized during a recent school assembly.
A big apartment fire sent heavy smoke into the sky above Waterville today.
Crews were called to the building on Paris Street a little after 10:00 this morning. At last report they were still on the scene using an excavator to knock down walls in order to reach the remaining hot spots. There are no injuries reported, but 12 people were left homeless by the fire. 3 of them are children. We're told two dogs also escaped, but some cats are still missing. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
