Fire burns shed in Phippsburg

PHIPPSBURG — A small shed burned Saturday when a brush fire got away from the building’s owner at 20 Oliver Libby Road, Fire Chief James Totman said Monday.

Totman said Fred Libby Jr. had a permit to burn leaves.

“The wind came up and it got away from him,” Totman said. “It melted a little of the vinly siding on his house, but there was no damage inside.”

Totman said firefighters happened to be in the fire station because Saturday was spring cleanup day.

“We were less than a mile away,” he said. “It was a good stop.”
