Afternoon fire destroys mobile home in Levant

LEVANT, Maine — A fire of unknown cause Friday destroyed a mobile home on Kenduskeag-Levant Road.

While the names and ages of the people who resided there weren’t available Friday, Levant fire Capt. Mark McKay said that a man, a woman and a female child who lived there were home when the fire broke out about 2:45 p.m.

All three made it out safely, McKay said. He said the woman was treated for smoke inhalation at the fire scene but did not require hospitalization.

Located at 108 Kenduskeag-Levant Road, the mobile home had extensive damage throughout, McKay said. It was not clear Friday whether the building was insured, he said. He said the family that lived there was renting it. He did not have immediate access to the owner’s name Friday evening.

McKay said that there was no shortage of firefighters at the scene because several departments were just finishing their work at a garage fire in nearby Kenduskeag when the mobile home fire was reported.

To that end, Levant crews were assisted by firefighters from Kenduskeag, Carmel, Stetson, Hermon and Glenburn.

McKay said the State Fire Marshal’s Office has been called in to help pinpoint the fire’s cause.
