| May 8, 2011

Winterport – The State Fire Marshal's Office says a young man who died in a Winterport Fire Thursday intentionally set fire to the building and himself.

The death of 20-year-old Wilbur "Wes" Strout of Hancock has been ruled a suicide by the Medical Examiner's Office.

Authorities say strout broke into the Calvary Apostolic Church on Route 1-A through a rear window.

Then he spread a flammable liquid throughout the worship area and in front of the altar, doused himself and lit the fire.

They say he then jumped from a second floor window and his badly burned body was found laying on the ground.
