Firefighters contain Wolfeboro brush fire, save nearby home

WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) — Officials say a home was narrowly saved by firefighters after they successfully battled a brush fire that scorched 1½ acres in New Hampshire's Lakes Region over the weekend.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports the blaze was first reported around 4:50 p.m. Sunday on the Lake Winnipesaukee end of Timber Lane in Wolfeboro.

Fire crews arrived to find a "fast-moving fire driven by winds off the lake" into the path of a nearby home.

Deputy Chief Tom Zotti says firefighters did a "superb job" in protecting the residence, which sustained no damage. The fire was under control by 6:15 p.m. and no injuries were reported.

Fire departments from Tuftonboro, Ossipee Corner and New Durham assisted Wolfeboro Fire-Rescue at the scene.

The blaze remains under investigation.
