Fifth house burns in Gorham arson spree

GORHAM, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Another fire in Gorham raises the number of arsons in town to five in just the last two weeks.

A house under construction just off Ossipee Trail on Dingley Spring Road caught fire on Wednesday night.  Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the fire was started in the back of the house, and damage was minimal.

The fire marshal's office was on the scene to investigate.

Another fire that broke out in the early morning hours that same day was initially believed to be a case of arson as well.  However, further investigation revealed the cause to be accidental.
