Ossipee barn destroyed in one-alarm fire
Center Ossipee Fire Chief Michael Brownell said the fire at 78 Moultonville Road was reported by multiple calls to 911 at 10:21 p.m.
Brownell said one challenge the fire presented was due to the barn’s close proximity to the road and firefighting equipment. Located just 12 or 15 feet from the road, firefighters came in close contact with the heat.
“The barn is basically a total loss. What was important is that the house that could have caught fire, did not catch fire,” said Brownell.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by Brownell and members of the New Hampshire Fire Marshal’s Office.
Brownell and inspectors spent time at the fire scene on Thursday.
