COLUMBIA, Maine (AP) - Fire officials say a newspaper carrier called 911 and awakened a family after noticing their home was on fire during his morning route.

No one was injured in the fire early Thursday at a trailer in Columbia - the four people inside made it out in time.

The Bangor Daily News reports its carrier called 911 at about 5:30 a.m.

Fire officials believe the fire appears to have started near a wood stove.
