PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — A home that was being renovated in Presque Isle was damaged extensively by a fire early Thursday morning.

Deputy Chief Adam Rider of the Presque Isle Fire Department said the fire at the home owned by Michelle and Norma Shankland broke out at approximately 6:15 a.m.

The home is located at 65 Parsons St.

The fire at the dwelling was well under way by the time firefighters arrived, Rider said. No one was living there because it was being renovated, he said.

The property had heavy damage and Rider said Thursday he was not sure whether the owners carried insurance on the house.

No injuries were reported.

The department received mutual aid from the Caribou Fire Department.

An investigator from the State Fire Marshal’s Office was called to investigate the fire.
