Cause of Winslow fire undetermined

WINSLOW - The State Fire Marshal’s Office says the cause of the Oct. 11 fire that destroyed McCormack Building Supply in Winslow will be undetermined. Fire Investigators said the fire started near a building in the back of the complex, known as the pine shed, where white pine lumber was stored.

The monetary loss from the fire will exceed $4 million.

Investigators interviewed about 25 people who were in or near the buildings when the fire broke out about noon on Oct. 11.  Those interviewed included employees, customers, and employees of a paving company which was paving on the property.

Lebanon man exposes himself

LEBANON - Maine State Police arrested a Lebanon man on numerous charges following a domestic incident.

On Oct. 19, Maine State Police out of Troop A responded to a residence on Smith Road in Lebanon for a reported domestic violence assault. After Troopers arrived, they met with 55-year-old Dominic Romero of Lebanon; Romero was intoxicated and yelling obscenities.

When confronted about the property destruction, Romero assaulted a member of his family.

As a result, Romero was charged with Arson, Criminal Mischief, Indecent Conduct, Stealing Drugs, Disorderly Conduct, and Domestic Violence Assault. Bail was set at $15,000 on the charges.

Moving day misfortune

FRANKLIN – Two people are facing charges after improperly moving a mobile home in Franklin.

On Oct. 8, Trooper Dana Austin received a report of mobile home that was being towed down Route 182 in Franklin by a front-end loader.

With assistance from the Franklin Fire Department, Trooper Austin was able to get the mobile home off the roadway and it was parked at the Franklin Community Center.

As a result of the investigation, Augustus Edgerton, 49, of Carmel, was summonsed for Operating without a license. Sarah Day, 28, of Franklin, was summoned by Trooper Joshua D’Angelo for not having the proper permits to transport the mobile home.

The crash happened in the Frye Mountain Wildlife Management Area, which is managed by the state and includes more than 5,200 acres of land for wildlife and recreational uses.
