LIMESTONE, Maine — An investigator with the state fire marshal’s office remained at the Loring Commerce Centre on Wednesday looking into an intentionally set fire in a vacant building that once was used as barracks at the former Loring Air Force Base.

The investigator, Tim Lowell, said that the flames were first spotted around 6 p.m. Sunday by area firefighters.

The building was unoccupied and no one was hurt, but the structure sustained significant damage.

The building is currently in the hands of out-of-state owners, according to Lowell, and was being renovated for use as apartments.

The investigation is ongoing. printed on August 20, 2017
