Two police officers were treated for smoke inhalation at a house fire in Norway at 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
The cause of the blaze at the two-story wooden building at 17 King St. is considered suspicious and is under investigation by the Norway Police Department and the Maine Fire Marshal’s Office, according to Norway Police Officer Ron Cole.
Paris Police Officer Nate Bowie and Norway Police Officer James Ventresca were treated and released at Stephens Memorial Hospital in Norway for smoke inhalation after they entered the burning building looking for occupants.
Earlier in the evening, Bowie also responded to the collapse of an apartment deck at 149 Moodybrook Road in Paris, which injured four people.
Cole said there were no other injuries in the fire.
Cole did not know who owns the property, which received minor damage from the fire.
