Maine Resident Leaps From Second Story Window to Escape Burning Home Tuesday Morning
Several occupants of a Maine home were taken to the hospital early Tuesday morning with their conditions unknown following a blaze that destroyed their house.
WABI TV 5 reported that a fire broke out in a home in Orono, Maine, early on Tuesday morning. The news station said that fire crews were called to the scene at about 2:30 a.m.
When first responders arrived at the scene of the blaze, flames were already shooting out of the back of the home, according to witness accounts. At that time, one of the three people that had been inside the home was forced to jump out of a second-floor window to get away from the flames and smoke, WABI reported.
Fire officials said that the home, as well as a nearby garage, were both destroyed following the fire, according to the news station.
WABI added that preliminary reports suggested that the fire was not suspicious in nature at this time, though the investigation is ongoing.
This is a developing story and we will continue to keep it updated as more information becomes available to us.
We wish a speedy recovery to all of those who were injured in this fire.
