WINDHAM, Maine — A fire destroyed a house on Woodland Road in Windham Friday night after firefighters spent hours putting the fire out.
The fire broke out at 67 Woodland Road before 8 p.m. Friday, and firefighters discovered heavy flames in the home’s basement and part of the first floor upon arrival, according to Windham fire Chief Brent Libby.
Windham firefighters, along with crews from surrounding towns, brought the fire under control in about an hour but needed several hours to put the fire out, Libby said. The home was a total loss.
The homeowner was taken to the hospital with burns that were not considered life-threatening, and two firefighters were treated on scene for heat exhaustion.
The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the fire, but at this point Libby said does not appear to be suspicious.
