Business evacuated after air conditioner overheats


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — WINDHAM — An overheated solenoid on an air-conditioning unit forced the evacuation of several businesses in Village Green Plaza Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters were called to Capri Pizza, 33 Indian Rock Road, at 3:17 p.m. for a report of smoke in the building, fire Chief Tom McPherson said.

Firefighters found light smoke coming from the front door of the restaurant and evacuated nearby businesses. Using a thermal imaging camera, firefighters found the overheated solenoid and ventilated the restaurant.

Due to the extreme heat, McPherson said, Salem and Derry were called in to assist at the scene. Londonderry firefighters provided station coverage.

No damage was reported.
