The State Fire Marshal’s Office says the body of a woman was found Thursday in the rubble of her mobile home in Chester, near Lincoln, Maine.


The fire was discovered by the woman’s grandson, who also lives at the home on the Loop Road.  The man had left on an errand and found the mobile home on fire when he returned about 10 a.m., according to Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The victim has been identified as 78-year-old Shirley Day of Chester.  State Police investigators joined fire marshals at the scene Thursday to assist with the investigation.
