2-alarm fire damages Windham home

WINDHAM - Firefighters worked quickly through the fog and rain to put out a two-alarm fire at a home on Lowell Road on Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters said the blaze spread quickly, and they needed to cut a hole in the roof to help vent the flames.

The official cause is under investigation, but it's believed to be electrical. Assistant Fire Chief Ed Morgan said the homeowner heard a small explosion when he turned on a light switch.

The home was heavily damaged but may not be a total loss.

A portion of Route 111A was shut down for more than an hour while crews worked to knock the fire down. No one was injured.
