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.
Senator Angus King announced today that northeastern groundfishermen will receive close to 33 million dollars in federal disaster aid.
The money was approved after the U.S. Department of Commerce declared a disaster because of the dwindling fish stocks.
The money will help fishermen who are struggling because of fewer fish to catch and more regulations that make it hard to stay in business.
Senator King says he looks forward to working with the Department of Marine Resources to make sure maine fishermen receive their share of the money. .
