NORWAY — Fire early Sunday destroyed an unoccupied house on Waterford Road in Norway, according to firefighters.

Chief Dennis Yates of the Norway Fire Department said crews responded to the blaze at 620 Waterford Road at about 3 a.m. and found the building consumed by flames.

The house was destroyed, according to Yates, who said the owner of the property still had not been identified later Sunday.

“As far as we know right now, it was an abandoned building,” Yates said. “It hasn’t been occupied for quite a long time.”

It took about 45 minutes for firefighters to bring the flames under control.

Firefighters from Woodstock, Greenwood, West Paris, Paris, Oxford, Otisfield, Harrison, Bridgton and Waterford also responded to the blaze.

Yates said investigators from the Office of State Fire Marshal are expected at the house Monday to search for the cause of the fire.
