NEWMARKET - About 30 people are temporarily without a home after a two-alarm fire Tuesday night damaged a 24-unit building at the Great Bay Woods condominium development.
Residents were evacuated and no one was injured, according to a fire department spokesman.
The fire was reported at 10:14 p.m. at 151 Lita Lane at the condominium complex and quickly went to two alarms, bringing in mutual aid from surrounding communities.
The blaze was under control about an hour later.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
