Body of man recovered from Biddeford fire
BIDDEFORD (WGME) -- The body of a man has been recovered, after fire burned through an apartment building in Biddeford.
Crews are still on scene hours after flames poured out of the rooftop, and sent thick smoke into the neighborhood.
Firefighters are on Hill Street, where they searched through the building for an elderly man.
The fire started around 8:39 Monday morning, and fire officials say it quickly spread into a five alarm fire.
They say the flames were so powerful they busted the windows of nearby buildings.
Fire officials say the unstable condition of the building is making it hard to go room by room looking for people or hot spots.
They say they will be here all night going through the debris.
They say this building is a total loss, and still are assessing the damage at the two other apartment buildings.
