A fire in Etna, Maine destroyed a man's home Monday afternoon, but he and his dog made it out safely.

A passerby spotted the fire at 65 Family Circle Road around 3:45 p.m. and called 9-1-1. Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from three of four walls and the roof of the mobile home.

Crews from Carmel, Newport, Plymouth, Newburg, and Hermon assisted the Etna Volunteer Fire Department in knocking down the blaze within 20 minutes. WABI reports crews were concerned about flames reaching a large propane tank behind the home. Windy, dry conditions were also a factor and firefighters had to put out some hot spots in the tree line surrounding the property. Fire Chief Timothy Hall said nobody was injured. The man lost most of his personal belongings. The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire.
