HINGHAM MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY v. RUTH McLELLAN

PER CURIAM

	The Hingham Mutual Fire Insurance Company appeals a judgment
entered in the Superior Court (Washington County, Kravchuk, C.J.)
determining that Ruth McLellan held an insurable interest in real property
at the time that a structure on the property was destroyed by fire.   Hingham
argues that McLellan had no legal or equitable interest in the property and,
therefore, had no interest to insure.  Because the Court is evenly divided on
the issue presented, we affirm the judgment.
	The entry is: 
Judgment affirmed.
