BANGOR, Maine — A fire raged Tuesday afternoon through a home in the Cedar Falls trailer park on Finson Road, leaving the metal walls standing but destroying everything inside, Assistant Fire Chief Darrell Cyr said.

Engine 6 arrived at the mobile home, located five units down from the trailer park’s entrance, just after 1 p.m. and the fire was burning strongly, he said.

“They did report fire showing through the roof,” Cyr said. “They did good to knock down the fire” within a few minutes.

No one was home when the fire broke out and no injuries were reported in extinguishing it, he said.

Yellow fire hose was run from the corner of Blue Hill East and Finson Road, across Finson and into the trailer park, temporarily closing Finson Road.

The roadway was reopened at around 2 p.m.
