Firefighters rescue family's Christmas gifts as they fight Hollis house fire


HOLLIS - A Christmas Eve fire seriously damaged a home on Farley Road, but firefighters managed to save the children's Christmas gifts.

Firefighters say the call came in shortly after 11 p.m. when a passing motorist reported the fire. When firefighters arrived, the breezeway, the garage and part of the house was burning. No one was home at the time of the fire, but the family's Christmas gifts were still inside.

Firefighters called in a second alarm and brought in additional manpower from Nashua, Amherst, Merrimack and Milford. The fire, which appeared to have started around the chimney area, was under control in just over an hour.

Hollis Fire Chief Rick Towne says the fire damage made the house unlivable so the family will be staying with relatives, but thanks to the firefighters, Santa came through for the children.
