The Maine fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a vacant inn in Guilford early Saturday morning.
The Trebor Mansion Inn was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, according to Guilford fire Chief Jeffrey Libby. The 19th-century building located on a hilltop just off Route 15 had been vacant for several years and was bank-owned.
Libby said a 911 call reporting the fire came in shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday. “It was already down when we got there,” Libby said Monday. “All we could do was park our trucks and keep it cool to protect the outlying structures from the building.”
The chief said no adjacent properties sustained any damage, and there were no injuries at the scene.
