Fire Destroys Garage And Damages Nobleboro Home

A fire at 190 Wildwood Shores Road on Damariscotta Lake in Nobleboro collapsed a garage and damaged a nearby home the afternoon of Friday, July 20. The fire started in the garage and spread to the house, according to Jefferson Fire Chief Walter Morris. Morris said by the time fire trucks arrived the garage had collapsed, so firefighters focused their initial efforts on an interior attack in the house to stop the spread of the fire. The fire entered the house from the garage through the attic, while damaging windows on the exterior of the home. Morris said fire crews were able to extinguish the flames in the interior of the house, but he was unsure of the extent of the damage inside the home. Firefighting efforts were complicated by the lakefront location of the fire, roughly a mile down a narrow, dead-end dirt road off Morang Cove Road, according to Morris. “It is a very narrow road and made for a tough response,” Morris said. Morris spoke highly of all the departments responding to the scene. “The first crews did an excellent job.
