Three cats perish in Goffstown fire


GOFFSTOWN - An afternoon house fire Friday afternoon claimed the lives of three cats, fire officials said.

 

 

No one was home when the blaze broke out at 163 Wallace Road at about 12:25 p.m., but Goffstown Fire Lieutenant Bill Connor said because a car was inside the home's garage, firefighters had to conduct a search to be sure the home was unoccupied.

 

 

Connor said a second alarm was called to provide station coverage, with units from Weare and Bedford providing mutual aid.

 

 

The home, which suffered damage a screened in porch on its right side, was not a total loss, Connor said.

 

 

Goffstown Police Officer Tom Defosses said at the scene that the fire was contained quickly.

 

 

"About 5 minutes after we got here, it blew out the side of the house," Defosses said, "but they had a lot of resources on the scene pretty quickly and they were able to contain it."

 

 

No other injuries were reported, and Connor said the cause is still under investigation.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
