An evening fire in Edgecomb heavily damaged a home on Abenaki Road June 3. Firefighters reported no family injuries, but said the home may be a total loss even though much of the damage is on the inside. “Realistically, it was a good save by the initial team that came in,” said Edgecomb Fire Chief Roy Potter. He said Edgecomb and Boothbay were the first to respond. Boothbay Fire Chief David Pratt said his truck was the first on the scene, after a call came in from a neighbor around 5:40 p.m. He said the first floor was dark with smoke, which was coming out of both upstairs air conditioners. He added the window screens were bowed, a sign of heat in the building. Pratt said the family, including Ed Crocker, Candie Crocker and their children, were not home at the time of the incident.
