UNITY, Maine (WABI) - The Community Market in Unity is a total loss after a fire today.

Multiple crews responded to the fire just before 3:00.

The fire was already fully involved when crews arrived.

The Unity fire chief tells us there are no injuries. There were two people inside cooking who made it out safely.

Officials do not yet know the cause of the fire.

A portion of Thorndike Road was closed for several hours.

Officials say although things could have been much worse for all involved, this is still a huge loss for the local community.

“Thursdays and Sundays, the market is closed. They have a community day on Thursdays and I know, I’m by here several times a day on average, and this place is hopping with customers,” said Unity fire chief Blaine Parsons. “It was a great store. It’s going to be a huge impact to the whole community.”

The state Fire Marshal is investigating.
