Fire marshal investigates fire that razed Newbury store
"We're doing a lot of work right now," he said.
The store's "mission," according to its website, was to "provide brand name furniture, antiques, accessories and fabulous findings at low prices. We re-upholster your vintage furniture with over 7,000 fabrics to choose from. Interior design services that fit all levels of style and budgets. Located at Lake Sunapee, N.H."
Thomas said he hasn't found the cause of the fire yet. The building, built in 1890 and valued in 2012 at $171,000, according to town records, is a total loss.
Thomas, one of the first firefighters to the scene, said flames had consumed much of the building by the time he arrived. The fire was reported by an employee of a restaurant across the street, Thomas said.
The owner of the building could not be reached for comment Monday.
