Two Sunday Fires for Lewiston Firefighters
Updated On: Sep 18, 2011


Lewiston Firefighters Douse 2 Fires 

Lewiston firefighters battled a morning and afternoon fire on Sunday, both with determined causes. Two young boys playing with fire started the afternoon two-alarm fire fire at 153 Bartlett St., said Investigator Paul Ouellette of the Lewiston Fire Department. The bed caught fire and spread to the room. He had no information about whether the fire was started by matches or a lighter. The two brothers playing with fire were between six and seven years old. The apartment had heavy damage and many possessions were lost, Ouellette said. They lived in an eight family apartment, but only two apartments were occupied. The first floor, front apartment was occupied and had heavy damage, said Captain Tim Myers of the Lewiston Fire Department. The other occupied apartment had no damage. Fire blew out of the first floor windows, but was contained to the building. No one was injured. In the second call, an overloaded extension caused a fire that destroyed a Lisbon Street business. The building at 258 Lisbon Street had a store on the first floor and apartments above, Myers said. The store was called the African Store. Smoke spread throughout the building in the fire, which was reported at 4:38 a.m. No one was injured, he said. Firefighters cleared the area around 6 a.m.
