LACONIA- Firefighters battled the extreme heat as they fought a fast-moving fire on Blueberry Lane in Laconia.
The fire started outside and quickly spread to the building, causing heavy damage to three town houses and a shared attic.
Chief Kenneth Erickson called for a third alarm to bring in extra manpower because of the 90-plus temperatures. Firefighters worked in rotations, sitting down and keeping hydrated.
"When you put on this gear and go into a burning building, you sweat out three gallons of water literally in the first ten minutes," Chief Erickson said.
The heavy fire in the center of the building destroyed most of what's inside. The damage is estimated at around $150,000 dollars. The Red Cross is assisting eleven people.
No one was injured.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, though officials believe it was accidental.
