CLINTON — The Office of State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of a fire that was reported late Tuesday night on Gold Street and damaged a mobile home.

Neighbors reported the fire at the mobile home, which is at 13 Gold St. and is part of the Evergreen Terrace development, at 11:52 p.m., firefighter and emergency medical technician Brandon Hale said.

They also woke up the one resident inside the home and got him out safely, Hale said.

The cause of the fire was undetermined Wednesday but doesn’t appear to be suspicious, he said.

When firefighters first arrived at the scene, only the roof was on fire. Hale said he doesn’t know yet if the home is salvageable, but he thinks it is insured.

He did not know the name of the occupant or whether he rents or owns the home.


A disaster action team from the American Red Cross of Maine is helping the resident get food, shelter and other essentials, according to a news release. Over the next few days, the nonprofit will stay in touch with him to provide financial assistance and information about where he can get help from the community.

The Clinton Fire Department was assisted by the Fairfield and Winslow fire departments in fighting the fire.
