LISBON — A family was displaced by a house fire at 70 Lisbon St. on Monday afternoon.

Fire Chief Sean Galipeau said none of the occupants or their pets were injured when flames erupted in a room on the second floor.

The cause “looks to be combustibles stored too close to a heater on the second floor,” he said. Damage to the room and its contents was estimated at $40,000.

The call came in at 12:50 p.m. and the fire was under control within 30 minutes, he said.

The American Red Cross was called in to help the family.

Galipeau said the landlord is working with his insurance company to have the building inspected and repaired.

Lisbon, Lewiston, Auburn and Topsham firefighters were at the scene and the weather did not hamper their efforts.
