SABATTUS —  Fire damaged the home of the owner of Sabattus Disc Golf Course and Pro Shop at 605 Bowdoinham Road on Friday afternoon.

Firefighters from Sabattus and Lewiston arrived about 2:30 p.m. to find flames inside the single-story home of Peter Ruby next to the business. No one was inside at the time and there were no reports of injuries.

The extent of damage was not immediately known and there was no word on what caused the fire.

The business was never threatened by flames.

Police blocked off a section of Bowdoinham Road as fire crews knocked down the flames. It was under control within an hour. Crews remained at the scene later Friday, blowing out smoke and beginning an investigation.

In a Facebook post later Friday, the disc golf business announced that they would be open for the weekend as usual.
