Consevancy thanks Machias Firefighters

Downeast Coastal Conservancy extends its thanks to the all-volunteer Machias Fire Department for being on hand and spending its Independence Day evening battling a blaze caused by the town’s fireworks display. While crowds of people were enjoying the fireworks, many noticed what appeared to be a fire burning on the ground somewhere on the shores of Middle River.
