CORINTH — Maine officials say a 7-year-old boy who’d stayed home from school died when a fire swept through his camper trailer.

State fire marshal investigators said the body of Christian Rand was found in the burned out camper shortly after the fire was reported at 9:30 a.m. in Corinth. They say the boy’s parents, Amanda and Nicholas Rand, were away at the time of the fire.

A team of fire marshal investigators is attempting to pinpoint the cause. The camper was on a relative’s property along Main Street.

The boy was home because of an illness, according to Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
