Maine Fire Chief Louis Richardson says being on the road helped the first responders get to the scene quicker than normal.
"What sped it up was that they were already dispatched for our first incident of the refuse fire. That put them on the road for probably a good 5 minutes before this was dispatched for," said Richardson.
Firefighters knocked down the fire in about 15 minutes. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. No one was home when it started.
