Edgecomb Fire Contained
By Dominik Lobkowicz

A fire that broke out this morning in a private residence at 593 Boothbay Rd. in Edgecomb was contained to a basement bedroom, according to Edgecomb Fire Chief Roy Potter.

The page for the fire went out at 11:34 am, with Wiscasset EMS and fire departments from Edgecomb, Boothbay, Newcastle and Wiscasset responding, Potter said.

"We were real lucky that we [were] able to get the manpower during the day to contain it to that one room," Potter said. There was smoke damage to other parts of the house, he said.

One firefighter was transported to Miles Memorial Hospital after experiencing chest pains, Potter said.

Potter said he did not yet have the name of the family that lived in the home, but they were uninjured. The family's dog was fine, but two cats were still unaccounted for, he said.

The State Fire Marshal's Office will be looking into the cause of the fire, Potter said.
