By  | 

ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) Folks in Wllsworth who were trying to save an old firehouse from demolition have had their appeal to the city denied.

The former Ticonic firehouse on Bangor Road were going to be demolished, but some citizens petitioned to save it.

Last week, the board of appeals lifted the stay on the demolition process that was put in place while the appeal played out.

The old firehouse is not designated as historic.

According to the city manager, Webber Energy has owned the property since around 2005.
