LEWISTON — U.S. Sen. Angus King is meeting with Lewiston police and joining city officials to get a firsthand look at the damage caused by three major fires that displaced more than 180 people.

The Maine independent is meeting with police on Friday morning before surveying the fire damage with city officials.

All told, the three fires destroyed nine buildings in span of just over a week in late April and early May. The fires were not connected and nobody was seriously hurt.

Two 12-year-old boys have been charged separately with setting two of the fires, and two men have been charged with arson in the third.
