SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — The now-vacant Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse in South Portland was destroyed by fire Monday afternoon.
Fire crews said it was a tough fire to control because of the building's high ceilings.
The former restaurant is located on Gorham Road between Hannaford and Clarks Pond Parkway. It was abruptly closed last June and was up for sale at the time of the fire.
No one was inside at the time of the fire.
