Gorham firefighters battled a fire Monday night in the single-family house at 6 Spruce Lane.

The man who owns the home was treated for minor injuries, according to WCSH-TV.

Gorham Fire Chief Robert Lefebvre told the television station that the man had just used a snowblower to clear his driveway. He covered the snowblower and put it in the garage.

Lefebvre said the man believes the cover may have caught fire. The fire started in the garage before spreading to a car and the home.

Spruce Lane is in a residential neighborhood off Route 114 near Gorham’s downtown.

A dispatcher for the Cumberland County Communications Center said the fire was reported at 5:32 p.m.
