A building in Old Town catches fire

OLD TOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- A building in Old Town caught fire tonight putting the main tenant inside the building out of business for a period of time.

The fire took place at 239 Main Street in Old Town, and the primary tenant inside the building is the Gossamer Press.

As of know the Old Town Fire Chief Steve O'Malley said there are no reported injuries. He said it took about 30 minutes for the multiple fire crews that were on the scene to get the fire under control.

O'Malley said the fire was contained to one section of the building.

"That building is basically broke up into like five different sections. So luckily the way it's designed, it's like sections. It's not sprinkled, and if it was sprinkled we wouldn't have had such a big fire, but the way it's designed the fire was able to be contained into one section of the building because of the sheet rock in-between the walls and almost like firewalls," O'Malley said.

O'Malley said there will be an investigation to determine how the fire started.
