DRESDEN, Maine (AP) — Dresden firefighters found themselves battling a blaze at the home of a colleague on Thanksgiving Day.
The blaze reported about 1 p.m. Thursday destroyed the home of Albert Lilly, a local firefighter and brother of fire Chief Gerald Lilly.
No one was home at the time, but two firefighters were treated for minor smoke inhalation.
Chief Lilly says the two-story home was totally involved when he arrived at the scene. He believes the house was insured.
Firefighters from Woolwich, Wiscasset, West Bath, Richmond and Pittston helped.
The cause remains under investigation, but Chief Lilly thinks a wood stove may be to blame. It is not considered suspicious.
