Fire damages interior of home on Bypass 28 in Derry
No injuries were reported in the fire that damaged the interior of the split level ranch home, according to the Derry Fire department.
The first arriving engine reported the fire at 5:37 p.m.
Next-door neighbor Sylvia Sharples was home with her husband, Terry, at the time of the fire. She said she went over to see if the family needed any help.
“It was just smoke; we didn’t see any flames,” Sylvia Sharples said.
Terry Sharples said windows were cracked throughout the house.
“It was coming out of the front and back,” he said. “You could see there was a lot of damage done.”
Forced out of their home by the fire, they are staying with friends, she said.
The cause of the fire is not considered suspicious, but is being investigated by the Derry Fire Prevention Bureau.
The Red Cross responded to the scene to assist the two adults and three children displaced by the fire.
