    Maine fire officials say a Thorndike man was hospitalized after he threatened firefighters and tried to prevent them from putting out a fire in a shed behind his home.

    No firefighters were injured after they responded to the fire at an East Gulch Road address just after 9 a.m. Saturday.

    Firefighters said the man became physical and had to be restrained. He was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

    Officials did not release the homeowner's name.

    The investigation by the state fire marshal's office and the Waldo County Sheriff's Office is ongoing.
