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.
