ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) -- The district attorney is reviewing the results of a state fire marshal investigation into an arson fire last March at Birdsacre, a nonprofit bird sanctuary in Ellsworth.

Sgt. Tim York tells WNSX-FM that the fire at the Stanwood Homestead Museum was intentionally set. The interior of the building is still in a state of disarray with fire damage, pieces of the collection destroyed and numerous items awaiting restoration.

The museum is part of a 200-acre wildlife sanctuary that aims to preserve the vision of ornithologist Cordelia Stanwood.

District Attorney Carlotta (Car-LEE'-tah) Dee Bassano said Wednesday that she's meeting with fire investigators to see if additional information can be gathered. She says it's too early to talk about suspects.
