HOLDEN, Maine — A mobile home under rehabilitation at Al Benner Homes off Route 1A was damaged by fire on Friday morning, according to officials.

Firefighters were called to the scene shortly after 10 a.m.

The mobile home is located at the back end of the lot, so there was no danger of the fire spreading to other homes.

“Our big concern was due to [chemical] exposures and all the mobile homes that sit around down here,” Holden Fire Chief Ryan Davis said. “Fortunately, this was sitting off to the side.”

Davis said when firefighters arrived, smoke was coming out of the back side of the building, but crews were able to knock it down quickly.

The chief said a woman working inside the building noticed the smoke and called 911. A cause has not been determined.

“We called the fire marshal just to check in,” Davis said.

The chief wasn’t sure how old the home was. Nobody was injured.
