A local golf course in Poland, Maine lost 20 golf carts in a fire that officials are calling a potential act of arson. This was the second time in less than a month Summit Spring Golf Course has been targeted. Either somebody has it out for them, or they just have incredibly bad luck.
Flames broke out overnight at Summit Spring Golf Course in Poland. Firefighters say if neighbors hadn’t seen these carts on fire and acted quickly, the whole clubhouse likely would have burned to the ground.
Neighbors say they heard popping noises that sounded like fireworks just after 1:30 AM Monday morning. They came out to investigate and found the golf carts on fire.
20 cards were burned, but firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to the clubhouse. They say they are investigating and have not ruled out arson.
This is the second time this golf course has been targeted recently. Staff members say their golf carts were vandalized just three weeks ago.
The golf course said it did not have security cameras, but say they will be installing them now to stop hopefully something like this from happening again.
Yes, installing security cameras would be a good start. Thankfully, witnesses called the fire department before any more damage was caused.
