GEORGETOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- Town officials in Georgetown are hoping for some outside help, after an old fishing wharf collapsed into the Kennebec River.
The old Tibbetts wharf at Bay Point fell Monday night. Neighbor Brent Perow told us he heard the crash. He said the wharf was very old, and had been leaning a bit before the collapse.
No one was hurt, and no oil or other pollutants got into the water.
Georgetown Harbormaster George Dufour, however, is worried that the debris from the wharf will pose a threat to other docks or boats if it floats away. Perow, who also has his own lobster dock a short distance from the collapsed wharf, said he has already seen some large timbers floating.
"Two (timbers) this morning," Perow told NEWS CENTER, "one got caught up in the boat here."
