MINOT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - State fire investigators say they will never know how a fire started in an old barn in the town of Minot last night.

That fire spread to the building next door that housed 3-apartments. A man was inside one of the apartments. He was able to get out safely.

The flames destroyed two of the apartments. The people that lived in them lost just about everything inside. Workers from the American Red Cross were on the scene this morning assisting the victims.

Minot's fire chief says when his first crews arrived on the scene around 8:30 last night the frame of the barn was all that was standing.

"It's always hard to fight with old buildings, 100-year old building were never made to be fire safe, so it was fully involved when we got here", said Minot Fire Chief Dean Campbell.

Because the fire burned so hot and caused so much damage investigators say it's too difficult to determine what touched of the flames. They do says there's nothing suspicious about the fire.
