    Cause sought for fire that destroys home

    Officials are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a house on Carlson Cove Road near Whitman’s Pond last week. Jennifer Mieth of the state Fire Marshall’s office said the single-family home collapsed during the May 12 fire and debris will have to be removed before local and state investigators can determine the fire’s origin. Nobody was home when the fire started, she said. Neighbors reported the blaze at about 9 p.m.
