Enfield fire draws firefighters from 5 towns

By Nick Sambides Jr., BDN Staff

ENFIELD, Maine — Firefighters from five towns were digging into the attic of a Dodlin Road home late Monday to keep a fire from spreading. No injuries were reported, firefighters said.

A resident at 754 Dodlin Road reported seeing flames in a second-story window of the house at about 7:50 p.m., a dispatcher at Penobscot Regional Communications Center in Bangor said. Burlington, Lincoln, Lowell, Passadumkeag and Seboeis Plantation responded.

Lowell Fire Chief Rick Smart sent in an attack team that quickly doused the bulk of the flames on the second floor and firefighters were digging into the attic crawlspace and the side of the building to eliminate hot spots.

The cause of the fire is unknown. Smart said he believed that a handyman was working on the house when the fire broke out, but had not yet determined if anything the man was doing was responsible for the fire.
