ROCKLAND - The state fire marshal's office is trying to determine what sparked a two-alarm blaze that damaged a vacant town building on East Water Street early Friday morning.
Lt. Dave Wooley said firefighters found heavy fire in a two-bay garage and second-floor office at 96 East Water St. after receiving a 911 call around 12:30 a.m. Friday. He said no one was in the building and no firefighters were injured putting out the blaze.
"There was pretty significant damage throughout that garage area and the second floor above it," he said.
Wooley said firefighters were at the scene until a little after 5 a.m. He said the building was previously used by the town’s water department.

A male driving a four-door car rolled over around 7:35 a.m. The car rolled off the right side of the road and into the embankment, Rockland Fire Captain Thomas Heaney said. He said he right lane and breakdown lane were both closed for almost 40 minutes until the scene was cleared at 8:12 a.m.
Heaney said the man was taken to South Shore Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He said the cause of the accident is undetermined.
Heaney said traffic was backed up more than a mile and a half to Route 53 in Hanover.
