LACONIA - Lt. Chad Vaillancourt and Firefighter Chris Beaudoin recovered an American Flag from the Winnipesaukee River in downtown Laconia Wednesday afternoon.
Laconia Fire Department says a hotel guest at the Landmark Inn called to report the flag in the water.
The flag was identified as one that came from Main Street but firefighters don't know how it got in the water and how long it was there.
The flag will be cleaned and returned to its post.
