Page 14 THE QUODDY TIDES 13 January, 1984 Fire destroys home of family in Quoddy Village at Christmas by sus.n Esposito Inhabitants of a Quodd Village home escaped injury on December 20 when a late-night fire destroyed the building and kept Eastport firefighters busy for five hours. Linda Lewey, her daughter Stephenie, 10, and her two foster chddren, Nathan. 6 and Daisy, 3, had been renting the house from Mrs. Ralph Zollo of Calais. A neighbor's call awoke the family at approximately 10:30 p.m. after smoke was spotted rising from the honie. Mrs. Lewey and the children fled tile house, hut their dog did not escape the fire. According to Eastport Fire Chief Mer- rill Conti, the rear of the structure was engulfed in flame by tile time firemen arrived on the scene minutes after Mrs. Lewey had been alerted, Seventeen fire- men, a pumper from Eastport and the tanker truck from Quoddy Village fought the blaze throughout the night. The men protected the neighboring John Lynch home from damage by wetting its roof and frequently spraying a curtain of water between the two structures. The Lewey's lost all of their posses- sions in the blaze, hut through the gen- erosity of many area businesses, organi- zations and individuals, the family has been gifted with many articles of cloth- ing and donations of money. Mrs. Lewey and her children have moved into 72 Boynton Street in East- port and would be grateful for donations of household items.
