AUBURN, Maine — A fire on Field Avenue in Auburn on Monday morning may have been caused by a heating device used to keep snakes warm on the third floor of 54-56 Field Ave., according to Auburn fire Chief Frank Roma. “From the evidence I have seen so far, it would be consistent with the call we received.”
