A truck was destroyed by fire at Lincolnville Beach on Dec. 31.

At about 11:30 a.m., a fire began under the hood of a 1988 GMC that was being used to pick up leftover brush on the beach from a Christmas by the Sea bonfire, according to Lincolnville firefighter Mike Eugley. The truck is owned by Peter Green of Lincolnville.

Eugley said an extinguisher was available at the scene, and those driving by stopped to assist. The fire was out by the time the Lincolnville Fire Department arrived, he said.
