EAST MACHIAS - The investigation into a September fire at the recently opened Stone Soup Cafe and Market in town continues.

The early morning fire gutted the building, which sits on the Machias and East Machias town line, and destroyed everything inside.


“It's an ongoing investigation,” Sgt. Scott Richardson of the State Fire Marshal's Office. “We just got some more things we have to rule out and we're not releasing any information at this point.”


Steven Torres, manager and brother of owner Nichole Look, said the family is still waiting for answers.
