Lewiston Fire Chief Mark Caron, right, recognizes Paul Ouellette during a retirement celebration Friday at Central Fire Station in Lewiston. Ouellette joined the department Feb. 2, 1998, hired by Chief Mike Lajoie as a fire prevention inspector. Ouellette was a volunteer with the Danville Fire Department at the time. Ouellette’s wife, Lucy, second from left, and daughter, Marianne, joined him on his last day of work after 25 years with the department. “Paul is probably the most dedicated employee working for the city of Lewiston,” Caron said. “He might even work for free,” he joked. “Might,” Ouellette quipped.
