Firefighters from several towns responded to a house fire in Sanford on Wednesday night.
Winds were gusting in the teens as flames were coming out of the single family home on Airport Road around 10:35 p.m., according to the Sanford Fire Department.
Fire crew from Acton, Alfred, North Berwick, and Wells responded to the fire.
Sanford fire officials on Thursday morning did not respond to Seacoast Current's request for more information about the fire.

Second Fire in the Past Week
This is the second large fire within the past week in York County.
A fire broke out at a farmhouse at the intersection of Heath and Depot Roads in Lebanon around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon that spread to a barn and the surrounding woods.
There are no working fire hydrants in the immediate area of the farmhouse. Water had to be shuttled to the farmhouse by several tankers for several hours to put out the flames, according to the York Fire Department.
A GoFundMe page continues to accept donations in an effort to help Elaine and Edgar Glidden, the couple that owns the property, rebuild. Donations will also help them care for the horses at the barn.
