GORHAM, Maine — Another suspicious fire in Gorham destroyed a two-car garage over the weekend.

The fire, which broke out on Buck Street at about 4 p.m. Sunday, is the fourth suspicious fire in town in the last two weeks, Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said in a release.

McCausland said the state fire marshal’s office has not determined a cause pending an examination of the rubble by an electrical inspector Tuesday.

The fire flattened the garage, which was located next to a house, and a pickup truck inside the garage was destroyed. The homeowner was not home at the time of the fire, the release stated.

Investigators are asking anyone who saw any activity around Buck Street Sunday afternoon to contact them through the Gorham Police Department at 839-5581 or the fire marshal’s office in Augusta at 624-7076.
