RANGELEY, Maine (AP) — One person is dead following a fire that swept through a home in Rangeley, officials said.

The fire was reported Friday afternoon and multiple fire departments responded. Firefighters recovered a body that is believed to be the home’s 86-year-old occupant, the state fire marshal’s office said.
