Attic Fire at The Riverside Motor Court, Caribou, Maine
The Caribou Fire and Ambulance Department were dispatched to a fire at the Riverside Motor Court just after 10 p.m. Monday night after smoke was seen coming from one of the unit’s roofs.
Crews were able to put out the fire in an attic section of the motel after gaining access. Most of the damage was contained to an area under renovation.
