Crews quickly douse electrical fire in Bangor
Updated On: May 15, 2010
 

BANGOR, Maine — A tenant living on the third floor of 34 Spring St. noticed smoke early Tuesday and called the Fire Department, which responded quickly and extinguished the blaze within minutes, Assistant Chief Darrell Cyr said later in the day.

“There was a fire in the walls on the third floor that was climbing up into the attic area,” he said. “They dug out the wall and extinguished the fire.”

The call for help came in at 4:46 a.m., and within minutes firefighters from the city and Brewer were at the scene and found heavy smoke billowing from the eaves. The apartment building is just up the street from the federal building.

The fire started in a wall in the kitchen and was close to breaking through into the attic and roof, in what Assistant Chief Vance Tripp described as a “near miss.”

The Spring Street building contains nine apartments, but not all were occupied, the fire official said. The occupants were evacuated while the firefighters worked. The blaze caused only minor damage to the building, and no injuries were reported.

“We got there quickly,” Cyr said. “Quick action of the firefighters [prevented] it from going” further.

The fire was under control in less than 15 minutes, he said.

“Thanks to their efforts the building is still standing, damage is minimal and the nearby apartments are undamaged,” Tripp said.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to investigate the cause of the blaze, and investigator Ed Archer determined an electrical problem was to blame, Cyr said.
