OLD TOWN — Multiple fire crews responded to a house fire on Spring Street in Old Town Sunday morning.
According to Capt. Mike Hildreth of Old Town Fire Department, crews arrived at the 3-unit structure building just after 10 a.m. Sunday.
Hildreth said three families were in the home and made it out safely, however, there was extensive damage to the building.
As of now, American Red Cross is assisting the families.
“So the heavy fire damage stayed to the outside wall, up the outside, and into the roof and into the attic in that front section,” said Hildreth.
“The two apartments in the rear received smoke and water damage, but no fire damage,” he said.
According to the neighbor, Lance Gorham, the fire department arrived on the scene shortly after one of the family members called 9-1-1.
“I grabbed the cat, threw the cat outside, then stepped back, and let the professionals do their job,” said Gorham. “A police officer was immediate on the scene and he continued with the search to ensure that every individual was out of the house.”
Hildreth said no one was injured and the fire still remains under investigation.
