South Thomaston — A two-alarm fire caused heavy damage Feb. 8 to a mobile home at 67 Dublin Road, but no one was injured in the blaze.

Amanda Cleary and Zach Robbins were home at the time of the fire, according to South Thomaston Fire Chief Bryan Calderwood.

The fire started in the bottom of the home where the residents had been using heat tape to thaw frozen pipes. The fire spread to the upper portion.

Firefighters from South Thomaston, St. George and Thomaston responded in cold, snowy conditions. The road was blocked off at the intersection of Route 73 while emergency vehicles lined the road and first responders worked at the scene.

Calderwood said there were still hot spots to deal with at the scene at around 6 p.m. The fire had started around 5:30.

Yeah, a fire, property loss, and human suffering is a real source of festive and Christmas-like illumination... nice observation V/S.
