    A mill building on Lewiston Street in Mechanic Falls was destroyed by a fast-moving fire Sunday afternoon, throwing flames and thick, black smoke high into the air. According to Town Manager Zakk Maher, the proximity of the Little Androscoggin River just behind the mill gave firefighters some breathing room because they didn't have to worry about flames jumping to other buildings in that direction.
