PLEASANT POINT, Maine — The State Fire Marshal’s office was on the scene Monday to investigate a fire that destroyed a home on the Passamaquoddy reservation at Pleasant Point.
The fire, reported about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, left the split-level home a total loss, said Pleasant Point Fire Chief Alan Sprague.
The State Fire Marshal’s office was at the site Monday, trying to determine the cause of the blaze, said Sprague.
Someone was in the process of moving out of the house and new occupants were in the midst of moving in, according to Sprague. He was unaware what arrangements the affected parties had made for temporary shelter.
No one was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.
The Perry Volunteer Fire Department also responded, and when firefighters arrived flames were visible in a basement window and a bedroom window, reported Chief Paula Frost. It took nearly an hour to bring the fire under control, she indicated.
There was fire damage in the basement and first floor, said Frost. Half the roof was destroyed.
Neither chief could estimate the value of the house.
