Midday reports of smoke in a Marshfield forest led area fire departments to investigate on the ground while the Maine Forest Service investigated from the air. The fire was located on a section of land operated by Wagner Forest Management, and spread to cover roughly six acres. Marshfield Fire Chief Daniel Bowker said the fire was caused by a logging operation.
