Bangor fire

Fire investigators are trying to find the cause of an early morning fire in a home on Norfolk street. They were called to the scene around 12:15 Thursday morning and discovered that a fire that started in the basement was spreading throughout the home. Turns out it was the same property where a fire erupted just two weeks ago. The building was condemned after the first fire and contractors were in the process of making repairs when the second fire broke out. Investigators determined the first fire was an accident, but the cause of Thursday's fire is undetermined. No one was hurt.
