WASHINGTON, Maine — Investigators believe two people are dead and a third injured after fire swept through a Knox County town Monday morning.

Neighbors reported the fire at the one-story home on Cattle Pound Road in Washington around 5:45 a.m. Firefighters arrived to find the home engulfed in flames and heavy smoke.

Firefighters and Knox County Sheriff’s Deputies pulled one man from the home but weren’t able to revive him, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. A second man is believed to have been home at the time of the fire, and McCausland said his body is likely hidden in the rubble of the house.

One woman survived the fire and is being treated at Pen Bay Medical Center for smoke inhalation and burns.

The names of the victims have not been released, pending notification of family members.

Fire marshal’s office investigators are combing the debris in an effort to find the cause of the fire and search for the remains of the missing man.
