YORK, Maine (AP) ― Maine State Police say a 27-year-old man from Canada has died after the car he was riding in struck a moose on the Maine Turnpike.

Police told WMTW-TV that Christopher Miller, of New Brunswick, was killed after the car he was in hit a moose in York late Saturday night.

Troopers said the car rolled several times after hitting the animal and came to rest against a tree. The driver suffered serious head injuries, but a woman who was in the back seat walked away with only cuts and bruises.

Lobsterboat Catches Fire off Rockland Breakwater

By Daniel Dunkle

Rockland — A plume of smoke rose into the sky above Rockland Harbor July 8 after a lobsterboat caught fire and burned next to the breakwater.

The U.S. Coast Guard, Rockland police, the harbormaster and Rockland firefighters responded to the scene. A joint effort of the Coast Guard and Rockland Fire Department extinguished the blaze.
No one was injured in the fire, which destroyed the lobsterboat owned by William Kirk, according to Assistant Fire Chief Adam Miceli.

A crowd of spectators gathered on the breakwater to watch the fire and take pictures. They were warned to stay back from the fire and the thick smoke rising from the burning vessel.
The fire was reported at about 11:30 a.m.

The fire started due to a mechanical problem with the hauler pump, Miceli said. Kirk and a sternman were working on the vessel outside the breakwater when the fire started. They motored to the inside of the breakwater, and escaped the burning boat by climbing onto the breakwater.
