6 towns respond to Westinghouse Electric Company fire in NH


Nobody was hurt after a fire broke out at Westinghouse Electric Company in Newington, a company that produces components for nuclear power plants, Friday afternoon.

"Installation was burning from some oil that got onto the machinery at high temperature which ignited. They quickly extinguished it with dry chemical and CO extinguishers."
