FARMINGTON, Maine — The Maine fire marshal’s office is investigating the detonation of an explosive device on a roadway in Farmington.

Neighbors heard the explosion Monday night and saw a vehicle leaving the area. No one was hurt, and there was no damage.

Fire marshal investigators were assisted at the scene by the state police bomb team and Farmington police.
