Fire Marshal investigates fire in Sanford

SANFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The State Fire Marshal's Office will look into the cause of a fire overnight at an apartment building in Sanford.

The Sanford Fire Department was first called to the scene of a building fire at 35 Lebanon Street at 12:22 AM Sunday.

On arrival, Acting Chief Richard Bond says they found smoke showing from the second floor of the four unit building.

Three people were taken to Goodall Hospital in Sanford; among them a man on home oxygen support.

Chief Bond says several other stations helped out in fighting the fire and that the operation ran very smoothly.

The fire started in a second floor apartment, and that unit suffered serious damage from the flames, smoke and water. The other 3 units sustained smoke and water damage.

Bond says he wouldn't venture a guess as to a cause until the Fire Marshal investigated.

A witness says that neighbors came out with blankets to help the newly displaced victims.
