Elderly Woman Dies After Fire at Gorham Assisted Living Facility
An elderly woman is dead after a fire in her room at the Gorham House assisted living facility.
The State Fire Marshal's Office says 84-year-old Lynda Muccino died Wednesday at Maine Medical Center in Portland, where she had been hospitalized since the Friday night fire. Muccino was being treated for burns and smoke inhalation. Investigators say a table lamp falling on a bed started the blaze.
This is the fifth fire death in Maine this year.
