Fire destroys Jake's Market in Sunapee


SUNAPEE - Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that destroyed Jake's Market in George's Mills Village in Sunapee late Saturday.

Sunapee Fire Chief Daniel Ruggles told NH1 News that police officers were first called to the store for a burglary alarm around 10 p.m. Saturday, and then they saw the flames.

Nobody was in the building at the time of the fire, and no one was injured at the gas station or convenience store.

Firefighters from several towns responded to the 2-alarm blaze and got it under control early Sunday, according to the Sunapee Fire Department.

Fire officials say the blaze does not appear to be suspicious.

Damage is estimated between $300,000-$400,000, according to Chief Ruggles.

A fund has been set up for employees of the convenience store.
