AUGUSTA — A fire late Saturday afternoon damaged a vehicle in a driveway and destroyed items in a storage tent at 27 Sixth Ave. in the Mayfair neighborhood, but caused no injuries.

Augusta Fire Chief Roger Audette said firefighters spent about two hours at the scene putting out that fire and a second one after it spread across the street and went under a snowmobile trailer.

“The fire had some significant headway,” Audette said. “At one point we had fire on both sides of the road.”

On Monday he said firefighters were unable to determine the exact cause of the blaze and asked for help from the Office of the State Fire Marshal largely because he anticipated insurance claims from the vehicle damage.

“We stopped the damage from the snowmobile and the trailer,” Audette said.

He said the fire, which was reported about 5:50 p.m. Saturday, did not appear to be of suspicious origin.

Audette said the fire began on property owned by Roland St. Pierre and that extra firefighters were called in to cover the city during that fire.
