JONESBORO, Maine — A fire reported early Wednesday morning destroyed the Jonesboro home of Mark Smith at 323 Looks Point Road.

Smith was out taking a walk when the fire was reported just before 6:30 a.m. Firefighters from the Washington County communities of Jonesboro, Jonesport, Machias, East Machias, Machiasport and Roque Bluffs responded, and some remained on the scene for more than seven hours.

A definitive cause of the fire could not be determined Wednesday by local firefighters. The Office of the State Fire Marshal is investigating.
