NH home deemed inhabitable after heavy smoke and fire
NASHUA — A Nashua home has been deemed inhabitable after the two story wood framed home went up in flames early Thursday morning.
Nashua Fire Rescue responded to the fire around 6 a.m. the morning of July 6. Upon arrival, they found the home filled with heavy smoke and fire showing. The Fire Department said the fire originated in the finished basement and spread to the first floor and attached screen room in the rear of the building. It also spread up the vinyl siding of the back of the building.
Four people were in the building at the time of the fire and all self-evacuated before Fire Rescue arrived. One of the occupants attempted to extinguish the fire prior to our arrival, suffered from smoke inhalation and was later transported to the hospital by Ambulance. The Nashua Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire. The home was declared as inhabitable by Fire Rescue.
Smoke detectors in the home alerted the occupants early to have enough to escape.
The Nashua Fire Department advises the best way to survive a fire is an early warning and escape plan, "Get out and stay out" to then call 911 from a safe location.
