EUGENE WEBER JR.
This patch belongs to Acton Fire Department, located in York County, Maine.
Wayne, ME - On June 2nd shortly after 6:00 P.M., Wayne Fire Department and the Lakes Region Mutual Aid group responded to North Wayne Rd. for a garage and house on fire. A Wayne couple lost their home after a fire broke out in their garage and quickly spread to their attached home. It is believed that the fire started when something went wrong while charging the
JUMP TO FILE #060517114 battery on a lawn mower. The homeowners were home when the fire started, but no one was injured. The fire department was quick to respond, but the building was fully involved when they arrived. Firefighters from Fayette, Man-
chester, Mount Vernon, Readfield, Vienna and Winthrop assisted Wayne. Firefighters remained on the scene until after 11:00 P.M., but hot spots remained. The scene was checked frequently during the night and an excavator was called in the following day to help put out the remaining hot spots. - ELAINE CHRISTOPHER
