HARRISON, Maine (AP) - A Harrison home has been destroyed by fire, but no one was inside at the time and there were no reported injuries.

The blaze at the home on Front Street was reported by a passer-by who noticed smoke just before 7 p.m. Sunday. The residents had just left to go shopping.

Deputy Chief Nate Sessions says when crews arrived there was already extensive fire throughout the two-story building and the kitchen was fully involved.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation, but Sessions thinks it started in the kitchen.

Firefighters from four surrounding communities helped battle the blaze, which knocked out power to about 1,000 customers for a short time.
