LUBEC – A large wildfire in Lubec is considered a work of arson.
Fire crews were called to the boot cove road earlier this week. They discovered a fire had started in two areas and was spreading quickly.
Forest rangers and other crews had it knocked down a few hours later. Lieutenant Jeff Currier says more than one-hundred acres were burned.
Arson is also suspected to be the cause of a fire in Cooper that scorched 3 acres.
