AUGUSTA - The Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry's Maine Forest Service is requesting people be extremely careful with any outdoor fires. To date, there have been nearly 80 Maine wildfires that have burned a total of 120 acres and threatened several homes. Most of these fires are caused by people being careless while burning outdoors. Either the fire gets away from them, or they fail to fully extinguish the fire and it rekindles the next day.

Emergency Service Challenge

CAMDEN Being a first responder is hard, physically as well as emotionally. And finding qualified applicants is always a challenge that is only compounded as many responders reach retirement age. To combat this, members of the Camden Fire Department, the Hope Fire Department and the Camden First Aid Association hope to increase recruitment as participants and spectators have a chance to meet first responders in various fields, including fire, EMS and law enforcement. Chris McCabe from 'Northwoods Law' has already registered as a member.
