Investigators unable to determine cause of Greenville fire

GREENVILLE, Maine — State Fire Marshal’s Office investigators were unable to determine the origin of the fire earlier this week that significantly damaged the Moosehead Cedar Log Homes sawmill.

Sgt. Tim York of the fire marshal’s office said Thursday his department has ruled the Feb. 23 fire of undetermined cause because of the extent of the damage.

The fire destroyed about 50 percent of the company’s main manufacturing building, owners Randy and Lucy Comber said in a prepared statement late this week.

The Combers said the building and its contents were insured and that they plan to begin rebuilding immediately. The company will continue to remain open, they said.

Customers will not notice any interruption in their service, according to the Combers, who said another log home company had offered its facilities and employees to assist Moosehead Cedar Log Homes in preparing home packages while they rebuild.

Greenville Town Manager John Simko said this week that the business employs 15 workers in the company’s manufacturing facility and sales office. The business has been a major employer in the town for a long time, he noted.
