GREENVILLE, Maine — A Greenville man died early Saturday morning when a fire swept through a two-unit apartment building on Washington Street, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.
Stephen Richards, 19, was found dead in the rubble of the house early Saturday afternoon. Three people who were living in the other apartment at 56 Washington St. made it out of the building safely, McCausland said.
Excavators were brought in to help find Richards’ body, McCausland said. He said the building was leveled.
Investigators from the state fire marshal’s office were at the scene Saturday. They said that the cause of the fire will be difficult to pinpoint because of the extensive damage.
