BOOTHBAY, Maine — An elderly man was hurt and a home was destroyed after fire broke out in a mobile home Saturday night.
Boothbay Fire Chief Richard Spofford told CBS 13 News that crews received reports of the fire around 5:30 p.m. Firefighters from Boothbay Harbor, Southport, Edgecomb and Newcastle all responded to help.
Chief Spofford said an elderly couple was inside at the time and that the wife helped her husband out. The husband was taken to Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta, Chief Spofford said. The victim’s condition was not clear Saturday night.
The couple’s dogs also escaped the fire. Chief Spofford said investigators with the state fire marshal’s office are looking into the cause of the fire, which is not believed to be suspicious.
