GORHAM – The Farmington Fire & Rescue Department is mourning today, after a long time firefighter was killed last night, after being involved a car crash.

Eugene Mosher, of Chesterville, was pronounced dead at Maine Medical Center after his SUV went off the road and crashed in Gorham at 9:30 p.m. last night. Winona Mosher, Eugene Mosher’s wife, was also in the vehicle, and was taken to MMC for treatment. Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.

Mosher would have been 78 today.

Mosher joined the Farmington department on September 11, 1984. According to Fire Chief Terry Bell, he had worked with the Norridgewock department before that. 

“He was a firefighter,” Bell said, in a brief statement. “He basically performed all the duties we do, every day.”

Bell said that the department was waiting to discuss matters with Mosher’s family, before planning any sort of service. Franklin County Dispatch did announce the passing of Mosher to all county departments in a broadcast this morning.
