WINDHAM — A house at 9 Glance Road sustained heavy fire damage late Tuesday afternoon.
All occupants got out of the house and there were no injuries, according to fire Chief Thomas McPherson.
The first firefighters to arrive encountered smoke, coming from the second floor and along the ridge vent of a two-story gambrel style single-family home. The home was occupied at the time of the fire, the chief said. All occupants evacuated safely.
As firefighters made their way into the house and to the second floor, they encountered heavy fire in a bedroom, a ceiling and the roof rafters. A second alarm brought crews Salem, Derry, Londonderry, Pelham, Litchfield and Hudson. Nashua and Hampstead provided station coverage.
Firefighters contained most of the blaze to the upstairs bedroom. The remainder of the home sustained smoke and minor water damage, McPherson said.
The fire was brought under control in about 40 minutes. Crews remained on scene for the next couple of hours assisting with the investigation. The home is owned by Brent Barton.
The blaze is being investigated by Deputy Chief Stephen Brady of the department’s Fire Prevention Bureau.
