Woods fire sparks reward offer
DIXFIELD – The Maine Forest Service is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to a conviction regarding a “very suspicious” woods fire off Canton Point Road Wednesday.
Maine Forest Service Ranger Jay Bernard said the fire only burned two-tenths of an acre at 972 Canton Point Road. But, had Dixfield firefighters not knocked it down so quickly, the wind could have spread it toward nearby homes, he added.
“There were structures threatened, but there was no damage,” he said.
Stopping short of calling it arson, Bernard said, “Spontaneous combustion doesn’t add up. It’s a human cause.”
He also said a local homeowner tried to suppress the fire but couldn’t, and called the fire department at about 1:10 p.m.
Information can be given to the Maine Forest Service at 800-750-9777.
