Nashua firefighters put out two fires; 14 people forced out in Palm Street blaze
The initial call came in just before 10 p.m. for a building in the area of Pine and West Hollis streets, but responding companies were directed to the correct address on Palm Street.
Fire officials said 14 people were displaced because fire and water damage forced power to be cut off.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the city fire marshal’s office.
When firefighters arrived at the condo in response to a 2:47 a.m. report they had to force entry into the storage area, which contained heavy smoke. The fire was located in what was described as a maze of storage lockers and extinguished.
Shortly after the reported building fire at 11 Blackstone, crews were told of alarms in the building at 9 Blackstone and located a malicious false alarm, a pull station activated by an unknown person. The city fire marshal and police are investigating the incidents.
The fire department said although no living space was heavily affected, there was minor water damage to living units immediately adjacent to the storage area.
