BUXTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A fire destroyed a Buxton home early Tuesday morning. The fire started around 3 a.m. and when crews arrived there was heavy black smoke pushing out of the building.
Fire officials said they believe the fire stared in the garage of the home at 922 Narragansett Trail. By the time crews arrived, the fire had spread to the rest of the house. About 50 firefighters were on scene with crews from Buxton, Saco, Scarborough, Hollis, and Westbrook. The Buxton Fire Chief Nate Schools said they ran out of water and had to pump it in.
The chief said it appears the home is a total loss. There were no injuries from the fire. Route 202 is closed between Route 22 and Cousins road due to the fire and will be for most of Tuesday morning.
