Officials say a woman is unaccounted for after a fire swept through a three-story apartment house in northern Maine.

The fire, reported at 4 a.m. Monday, flattened the building in Fort Fairfield, and workers were searching in the rubble for the missing woman.

Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland said the cold temperatures were hampering the search. It was 5 below at the site.
