WARREN, Maine — A wind-driven fire destroyed a house and barn Sunday night.
There were no injuries in the fire at 1146 Finntown Road that was reported at about 9 p.m., according to Warren fire Chief Ed Grinnell.
The fire started in the house but quickly spread to a barn and an attached building. The chief said the barn was collapsing within a few minutes of catching fire.
No one has lived in the house for the past couple years, the fire chief said. Town tax records list Robert Martin as the owner. The buildings on the property are assessed by the town at $87,100.
Family members had been on the property earlier that day, but they did not know how the fire began, Grinnell said.
The electricity was still on at the house. The chief said the cause of the blaze has not been determined.
Firefighters and trucks from Friendship, Waldoboro and Union also responded to assist Warren in battling the fire. Grinnell said the crews remained on the scene until 1:30 a.m. Monday.
