ELLSWORTH – The Ellsworth Fire Department responded to a wildfire at an island on Graham Lake Friday afternoon.
According to Ellsworth Fire Captain Tyler Kennedy, the call came in at about 2:30 p.m., and it took about an hour and a half to control.
Kennedy says the fire burned just under an acre and was caused because a campfire was not properly extinguished.
Kennedy is reminding people to make sure fires are completely out before leaving them.
He says Hancock, Lamoine and Trenton Fire Departments assisted on scene.
