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.
