HILLSBOROUGH — A vacant West Main Street house was damaged in a two-alarm fire Tuesday morning.
Firefighters were called to 107 W. Main St. about 6:30 a.m., where heavy smoke was coming from the building, according to Fire Chief Kenneth Stafford.
The house has been unoccupied for about 15 years, Stafford said. It had been purchased by someone hoping to fix it up, but has remained unoccupied and unheated, he said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, Stafford said.
Firefighters kept the blaze contained to an upstairs back room, Stafford said. West Main Street was closed while firefighters put out the blaze.
