Fire damaged a multi-function building at Camp Sebago in Standish Tuesday morning. Camp Sebago is owned by the Salvation Army. Firefighters were called to the camp just before 7:30 a.m. and found smoke coming from the roof of the large, two-story building and sprinklers activated. Crews were able to get inside and contain the fire in one room, though there is additional smoke and water damage. The cause of the fire was under investigation by the Maine Fire Marshal's Office Tuesday but was not considered suspicious. Camp Sebago offers a summer program consisting of six weeklong sessions. Children come to the camp from Salvation Army corps and service units throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. The main camp program is geared toward boys and girls ages 7 to 12.
