Sgt. Tim York said the case is still being investigated and that he could not release further details. The cause and origin still are unknown, but York said evidence collected concluded that it was arson.
Firefighters responded at about 7 p.m. to reports from a nearby homeowner that a two-story home and attached barn were in flames.
At the scene Monday, Bangor Assistant Fire Chief A.C. Bostock said the home had not been lived in for quite some time and that he was unsure whether there was electricity running to the building.
The fire will continue to be investigated jointly by the Fire Marshal’s Office and by the Bangor Fire Department.
