According to WGME, a weekend house fire in Sanford has displaced a 93 year old World War 2 veteran who is well known in the community.

Raymond Payeur is a lifelong Sanford resident who, during WW2, served his country as a sailor in the U. S. Navy

Fire officials say early Saturday morning a fire started inside of Payeur's house. It destroying decades of memories and memorabilia, something near and dear to the 93 year-old's heart.  One of those items was a wooden model of the USS Indianapolis that Payeur had carved.

Fortunately, he made it out safely.  His home, however, has been left uninhabitable.

You can help him get back on his feet by making a donation to his GoFundMe page.
