PARKMAN, Maine (WABI) - The main building at a lumber mill in Parkman is destroyed after an early morning fire.

It happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday at Glidden Lumber.

We’re told the building housed most of the sawmill equipment.

No one was injured.

It took multiple crews around five hours to put out the blaze.

Local officials tell TV5 they believe a faulty piece of machinery caused the fire.

It’s still being investigated by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
