In Corinna another retired mechanic, who still took work at home, lost his garage and a life time of tools. Cars he was working on were also lost. He had no insurance, a very sad thing indeed.
In Lewiston (which really isn't too nearby) a 1998 Porche was lost in a garage fire along with a newer, less expensive car.
The first fire was caused by sparks as the owner was using a grinder, he didn't notice the smoldering rags. The second fire had a unknown cause, probably connected with a wood stove or a chimney that wasn't cleaned - we'll never know. No cause was given in the third instance.
It was a sad day for three hard working men.
