Lewiston cleans up, investigates another fire

Staff photo

Residents ask a Lewiston police officer about when they can go back into the home that burned Friday night on Bartlett Street. The fire started in a garage and spread to four buildings on Bartlett and Pierce streets. More than 100 people were without homes because of the fire. Because local hotels were full — mostly because of Monday's Blake Street fire — people were taken to Lewiston High School.
