BRUNSWICK, Maine — The delivery trucks and other assets of a Maine heating oil company that went out of business this winter are being auctioned off.

Tuesday’s auction takes place at the former site of the Thibeault Energy Corp. fuel depot in Brunswick. The company shut its doors in January after 84 years in business, stranding hundreds of customers who had pre-paid for their oil.

The 36 items to be auctioned include eight oil delivery trucks, a liquid propane delivery truck, tank trailers, utility trucks and assorted other vehicles.
