Weare fire destroys building; no injuries reported

WEARE - A fire destroyed a two-story building on Norris Road Sunday night.

Fire officials said a report of a brush fire in the area of 173 South Stark Highway was called in about 10 p.m. Within 10 minutes, Engine 4 from the South Weare fire station was on the scene of a fire in a large two-story buidling at 58 Norris Road.

By then, however, the building was consumed by flames and had collapsed. The entire building and its contents were destroyed, according to fire officials.

Firefighters from several surrounding communities helped to battle the fire in icy conditions. Water had to be trucked in by tankers.

Goffstown, New Boston, Henniker and Dunbarton provided mutual aid.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

No one was injured.
