EASTBROOK — The woman who was flown to a local hospital after a fire at her home last week is recovering.
Nancy Rogers was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) by LifeFlight helicopter May 13 for treatment of smoke inhalation. Fire officials said Rogers made several trips back into her smoke-filled Macomber Mill Road home that day to try and save her pets.
Rogers initially was listed in critical condition at the Bangor hospital last week. On Tuesday, however, an EMMC spokesman said Rogers is now listed in good condition at the hospital.
Fire officials said at the scene last week that the fire started in the kitchen of the house, though they were unable to determine a specific cause.
Sgt. Tim York of the Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office said Wednesday morning that the fire has been deemed an accidental cooking fire. He declined to elaborate on that classification.
