CASCO — Sebago Lake State Park headquarters was destroyed by fire Wednesday morning.

The blaze was reported at 6:30 a.m. in the main building, which is about 40 feet by 100 feet, authorities said. Fire crews from seven departments responded to the fire.

No one was inside the building at the time of the fire and no one was injured.

Firefighters were able to save several computers and radios from the office section of the building, said Naples Deputy Fire Chief Andrew Burnham.

The building is in the shape of an ‘L’ and the fire started in the center, Burnham said. The State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.

The building is used throughout the year, with four to five employees reporting there daily, he said.


A ranger vehicle and some dry goods that were in storage in anticipation of the summer season were destroyed by the fire.

Burnham said fire crews had good access to the building and water supply, and were able to get the fire out fairly quickly, but it had already destroyed the building.

“Nothing seemed odd, but we turned it over to the State Fire Marshal’s Office so they can begin doing the investigation into the cause,” Burnham said.
