Families ousted by fire

LEWISTON — A fire erupted at an apartment house at 92-94 College St. late Friday after what neighbors described as a possible explosion.

Norman Bourget of 139 Oak St., a house behind the burning structure, said he heard a loud noise like an explosion between 11:15 and 11:30 p.m. When he went outside, he saw the flames at the rear of the College Street building. The fire was reported at 11:41 p.m., fire Chief Paul LeClair said.

After a report of a missing woman in the burning apartment, firefighters called for rescue to aid in removing a person found on the first floor.

At about 12:25 a.m., rescue personnel were wheeling a man away from the building on a gurney. A man who was suffering from possible smoke inhalation was taken to a local hospital, LeClair said.

College Street was flooded with water and police had taped off the area to keep spectators back. A crowd of more than 100 people gathered in the neighborhood.

No further information was available early Saturday morning.
