One dead, one missing, & one injured after fire in Washington, ME

From the State Fire Marshal’s Office:

“The State Fire Marshal’s Office says one man is dead, a second is missing and a woman was injured in a fire this morning in the Knox County Town of Washington. The fire destroyed the one story house on Cattle Pound Road, off from Route 105. Neighbors discovered the fire about 5:45 am and there was heavy fire and smoke when firefighters arrived. The dead man was pulled from the house by firefighters and deputies, but resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. The body of the missing man is believed to be in the rubble of the house, most of which has fallen into the basement. The woman survivor is being treated at PenBay Medical Center for smoke inhalation and burns. A team of Fire Marshal investigators are at the scene and will attempt to pinpoint the cause of the fire. They also will oversee the search of the rubble for the missing man.”
