Fryeburg Flooding

Fryeburg Police and Fire Department’s Swift Water Rescue Team were out Tuesday (4/23/19) assessing flood damage to the area surrounding Lovewell Pond. Both the pond and Saco River swelled during the overnight, causing water damage to roughly 25 homes in the surrounding area. Crews coordinated with Central Maine Power Company to have electricity cut from the affected homes and collected hazardous debris from the water such as floating gas and propane tanks. No injuries were reported during the mission.
