All Too Common

Four of the top eight stories on are about fires-three in homes, one in a business. Fires in winter in Maine are all so very common, and the state averages 5 deaths a year due to fires.

Causes range from a bad battery in a laptop computer (Biddeford on Tuesday) to mice chewing through electrical wires to chimney fires.
Wherever you live, please make sure you have a working smoke detector on every floor and check those batteries when you change your clocks.
