Second Fire within Year Damages Upscale Maine Resort

January 22, 2008

The Maine fire marshal’s office is investigating a fire at the upscale Stage Neck Inn in York a year after another fire damaged the oceanfront resort hotel.

York Village Fire Chief Chris Balentine estimated the damage from last week’s fire at $200,000. He said the blaze started in an attached storage shed on the side of the building, but that quick work by firefighters contained the fire to a function room.

The resort was set to open the next day after a planned two-week closure.

The fire was similar to one last February that broke out in the inn’s laundry room a day after the hotel opened after being closed from several months for renovations.

Damage at that time was estimated at $300,000.
