Laundry room fire causes evacuation of NH apartment building
NASHUA — A fire in the laundry room of a Nashua apartment led to the evacuation of the whole building.
Firefighters responded to a reported fire in the laundry room of 17 Kessler Farm Drive, Boulder Park Apartments, on Sunday at 11:40 p.m. and discovered smoke on the first floor of the four-story apartment building.
Officials extinguished a small fire in the laundry room, which caused a considerable amount of acrid smoke on the first and second floors. They then ventilated the smoke as the occupants gathered outside for about an hour.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Nashua fire and police departments.
