I offer my sincere condolences to the family of 9-year-old Taylor McQueeney who did in the fire on River Street in Lewiston on Aug. 17.

Many people have died in the past because utility companies were more concerned about collecting their money than humanity.

The little girl would be alive today if CMP had used better judgment before disconnecting electricity in a neighborhood where the buildings are so close together.

The Lewiston Fire Department deserves thanks for preventing the fire from spreading and becoming a horrible nightmare for other families.

Landlords need to monitor their tenants to assure their utilities have not been disconnected and the Public Utilities Commission needs to conduct a full investigation.
