HOPE — A fire destroyed a cabin Wednesday night, Feb. 2.

The owner of the cabin was able to get out without injury, the fire chief said.

The fire was reported shortly after 9:30 p.m. The initial call to Knox County Regional Communications was it appeared to be a woods fire, but the caller was not aware there was a cabin at that location. As crews were on their way to 155 High St., more calls came in saying it was a cabin on fire, Hope Fire Chief Clarence Keller said.

The cabin — about 12-by-24-feet — was owned and occupied by Chris Kimball.

The cabin was engulfed in flames and the roof had collapsed when the first crew arrived. The cabin was on a long driveway that was covered with ice which made the effort more difficult, the chief said.

The Maine Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to assist in determining the cause of the fire, which is suspected of being connected to the woodstove or chimney, the chief said.

Camden and Lincolnville crews provided mutual aid to Hope. Crews were there until after midnight.
