Strafford house fire that caused $70,000 worth of damage under investigation
Firefighters and police returned to the scene Monday morning to begin investigating with members of the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
Whitehouse said this includes two people who were reportedly inside the home when the fire began.
Local crews were assisted by firefighters from Barnstead, Barrington, Candia, Chichester, Epsom, Farmington, Northwood and Nottingham. Firefighters from New Durham provided station coverage, according to Whitehouse.
While firefighters were able to save parts of the house, Whitehouse said the kitchen, living room and an enclosed two-season deck were “gutted.” He added other sections of the house incurred lesser damage from heat and smoke.
Whitehouse said firefighters used chain saws to cut into the roof to vent the fire. He estimated the fire caused between $70,000 and $80,000 worth of damage, but the home is insured.
