Maine Investigators Look for Man who Started Fire at Storage Facility
State Fire Marshals are looking to identify a man believed to be involved in setting fire to a self-storage facility in Benton Monday night.
A surveillance camera captured images of the suspect. He is described as wearing a Dale Earnhardt jacket and a ski mask. He may have suffered minor burns, said investigators. A flammable liquid was used to ignite the fire.
A passerby saw the flames in the back of the R&D Self Storage on the Neck Road and partially put the fire out before firefighters arrived, said State Fire Marshals. Contents of storage lockers were not damaged.
The Fairfield Fire Department responded around 10 PM Monday.
