CONCORD - Fire Investigators have returned to the scene of Monday's massive brush fire near Penacook Lake to figure out what sparked the fire and exactly how much land was torched.

Firefighters were able to contain the intense eight-acre brush fire without injury and damage to nearby homes.

It took seven hours, 70 firefighters and thousands of gallons of water to get the job done.

A crew with the State Division of Fire and Lands monitored the area overnight and was prepared to contain any new fires.
