ROCKPORT — A 100-foot-long nursery greenhouse off Main Street was partially destroyed Tuesday evening, Nov. 8 by a fire that went to two alarms before it was extinguished. There were no injuries, and no other structures were involved.

Officials suspect the fire at 535 Main St. started in or near a wood furnace, then spread to engulf and destroy the furnace and about 25 percent of the greenhouse, Rockport Fire Chief Jason Peasley said Wednesday morning.

The blaze was extinguished quickly, according to Peasley. “Everybody is fine,” he said. “Actually, it was pretty straightforward, pretty basic.”

Firefighters and EMTs from three other departments, Rockport police and a private EMS company responded to the second alarm, according to Peasley. “We thank all the mutual aid for coming; it was a good turnout by all and we are glad we saved what we did.”

He identified the business owner as Keryn Annis. He could not be reached for comment.

The Rockport department’s Facebook page posted the following account shortly after the incident ended:

“At approximately 7:34 we were called to greenhouses on Main St. for a confirmed structure fire. A second alarm was struck, calling in Hope Fire Department, Camden Fire Department & Rockland Maine Fire & EMS Department.

“The temps had dropped to about 40 with a blustery wind, bringing the wind chill down to 33 degrees. Luckily, thanks to 15 Rockport firefighters, plus Hope, Camden, and Rockland firefighters with the assist of Rockport Maine Police Department & North East Mobile Health Services the fire was contained quickly.”
