One burned in Hampton fire; cold temperatures challenge firefighters

HAMPTON - One person suffered minor burns after a fire broke out at a home on Locke Road.

Crews were called to the home around 8 a.m. Friday.

Firefighters from multiple towns were called in to help and said the single-digit temperatures and large amount of snow were extremely challenging.

There also was concern with a gas line connected to the home, which firefighters had a difficult time finding.

"We had extreme access problems with snow banks, there were 7-foot to 8 foot snowbanks around the exterior of the home," said acting Hampton Fire Chief Jameson Ayotte. "We were trying to get to the gas meter to shut that off. We were trying to get close to the fire from the exterior and interior of the home. The front door was buried, so these guys were really up against it from an access point of view."

The burn victim was treated and released on-scene.

Firefighters do not yet know what caused the blaze.
