Lightning sets York stable on fire

The Associated Press

YORK, Maine — Maine fire officials are blaming lightning for a fire that damaged a York stable.

Megan Mello, owner of Riverwatch Stables, says a relative helped her get six horses and a litter of kittens out of the stable before the fire got out of control.

The fire was reported about 6 p.m. Tuesday. There were no injuries.

Multiple fire crews from the area helped fight the fire.

Longtime York resident Alan Junkins told the Portsmouth Herald the Cider Hill Road area has a long history of lightning strikes and fires.
