No injuries after 4-alarm fire in Peterborough destroys home, displaces 4


PETERBOROUGH - All four tenants that were home at the time of a 4-alarm fire were able to make it out safe on Tuesday.

A 911 call came into crews after a kitchen fire broke out at 477 East Mountain Road.

Fire crews from several towns responded, and they all said it was something left on the stove that caused the older building to quickly become engulfed by flames.

Crews were only able to recover a few personal items for the victims - old books and photos and a chest with blankets - everything else was a total loss.

Tenants are working with New Hampshire’s Red Cross to find clothing, food, and temporary shelter.

Only one tenant suffered minor injuries to her hand when she attempted to punch through a glass window to allow a pet cat to escape.

Firefighters told NH1 News there is a lesson to be learned here.

The smoke detectors had just been replaced, and they said it was a big part of ensuring everyone’s safety.
