Nashua apartment building fire displaces several residents
Deputy Fire Chief Matthew O’Brien said fire crews responded just before noon to a basement fire in an apartment at 525 Amherst St. and immediately ordered a second alarm to make sure that all of the residents were safely removed from the building.
“We do have several occupants displaced because of this fire because of the smoke and heat damage,” O’Brien said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Nashua firefighters also fought a fire in a rooming house on Sunday afternoon. The fire at 23 Temple St. began in one of the rooms and set off the sprinkler system.
City building inspectors were called in because water from the sprinkler system soaked some electrical equipment in the building
O’Brien noted that sprinkler systems, and domestic water pipes, can present a problem when temperatures reach above freezing after a severe cold snap.
“We have been inundated with problems,” O’Brien said. “We are seeing a lot of situations of domestic and fire-related systems with water damage from broke pipes.”
