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 American Red Cross was called to the scene to help displaced residents, and officials opened the town's community center to accommodate those who needed shelter. The Red Cross gave financial aid to one resident for food and lodging.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
