RUMFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Crews are investigating the cause of fire at a condo complex in Rumford early Wednesday morning where officials say at least nine people have been displaced.
The fire is at the River Valley Rents condominium complex, also known locally as the Madison Condos, on Route 2.
The building used to be a motel but is now used as condos, fire officials said. Property officials said about six units were damaged or destroyed by the fire, which started about 4:30 a.m., said officials.
A private residence owned by the property owner attached to the complex but separated by a fire wall also suffered smoke and water damage.
Eight fire departments from surrounding towns about an hour and a half to knock the fire down- even then, crews stayed on scene for several hours to put out hot spots.
The Red Cross Disaster Action Response Teams are on scene meeting with the people affected by the fire to make sure everyone has a safe place to sleep, food and other essentials.
There are no reports of any injuries, but officials believe at least a portion of the complex is a total loss.
Another fire burned down part of the building more than 10 years ago, according to the property's maintenance manager.
