Photo by Andy Capwell

Leaving my house this morning, all I could hear were sirens and more sirens. Then, I saw a large plume of smoke billowing into the air. Either a fire or an accident had must just occurred on Riverside Drive in Augusta, near the entrance of the Riverside Mobile Home Village, where I live.

I was in line heading into town and about 5 or 6 vehicles deep in line. The Augusta Fire Department was telling us we had to turn around, it looked like traffic heading north on Riverside Drive towards Vassalboro, was also being detoured.

The fire was at 323 Riverside Drive in Augusta. Unfortunately, two dogs died in the fire, two cats were also missing. The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire.

I safely took a few pictures, while in my car of what I could see.
