Newport mobile home destroyed by fire

NEWPORT, Maine — A family of four lost everything Wednesday night when their mobile home on Tyler Street was destroyed by fire.

The blaze broke out shortly after 6:30 p.m., according to Newport Assistant Fire Chief Rick Turner.

Turner said when he first arrived at the scene, heavy smoke and flames were spewing inside the kitchen.

The fire originated in the kitchen area, but Turner said a cause has not been determined. The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the blaze.

Turner said the homeowners had insurance, and the fire marshal’s office was expected to return to the scene Friday to continue their investigation.

Nobody was home at the time of the fire, and the homeowners, which included a couple and their two children, are staying with family.

Corinna and Pittsfield provided mutual aid.
