Police Log: April 21, 2014


JAY — A fire damaged a single-family home here Sunday morning. 

Report of a blaze at 869 Stickney Bridge Road came in at about 10:43 a.m., according to Essex County Dispatch. 

Crews from Jay and AuSable Forks fire departments responded to the scene and were able to contain the flames to the kitchen area of the two-story residence while Upper Jay Fire Department stood by. 

The home’s cook stove and some of its kitchen cabinets were destroyed, according to Jay Fire Chief Glenn Williams, and the living-room area suffered severe smoke and heat damage. 

Crews stayed on scene for about an hour and a half, he said, extinguishing flames and cleaning up water to avoid damage to the hardwood floors. 

The residents of the dwelling were continuing clean-up efforts Sunday afternoon, Williams noted, and planned to remain in the home that night. However, he said, they had family nearby to stay with if need be.  

Both gas and electricity were involved in the blaze, Williams said; though, it was hard to determine which was responsible. 

The cause and origin of the flames were under investigation, he noted, but were not suspicious. 

No injuries resulted from the incident, Williams added, and the home was insured. 


BANGOR — A North Bangor woman was hurt in a car-tractor accident here Friday morning.

Choiniere, 33, also of North Bangor at about 9:55 a.m. when the accident occurred, according to Malone State Police. Choiniere was making a turn at the same time, and they collided, police reported.

Aguirre complained of pain and was transported to Alice Hyde Medical Center, where she was treated and released.
