A fire in Cushing that destroyed up to 200 lobster traps the night of May 18 was arson, according to an official with the Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office.

Two investigators from the State Fire Marshal’s Office visited the scene of the May 18 fire at 25 Far Meadow Lane, according to Sgt. Joel Davis. The traps were owned by Wyatt Weaver.

The investigation continues and no arrests have been made, Davis said.

Sgt. Mark Tibbetts of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office is also investigating the arson.

The sheriff’s office was called to the scene at about 9 p.m. on May 18.

Davis said 150 to 200 traps were destroyed. Traps cost $50 to $80 each, meaning the damage from the fire could be as much as $16,000.

The traps were in Weaver’s yard, the fire investigator said.
