WARNER, NH - Firefighters battled cold and water issues at a three-alarm fire on East Sutton Road early Sunday evening, January 8th. Concord Fire Alarm received a 911 call reporting a house fire at 5:29 P.M., and dispatched Warner Fire along with automatic mutual aid.
"The fire had a pretty good start on us," Warner Fire Chief Jonathan France said. Firefighters arrived at 5:38 P.M. to find heavy fire showing from the custom-built contemporary home, which is located about a mile away from Interstate 89.
First due firefighters made an aggressive interior attack, but had to withdraw due to some early water problems. A second-alarm was transmitted at 5:41 P.M., and the third-alarm at 5:59 P.M., bringing in numerous mutual aid tankers to shuttle water into the scene. The heavy fire was knocked down at 7:30 P.M.
"When it's that cold out you want as many people as possible to put the fire out," France said. Four people were home at the time of the fire, but no injuries were reported. The fire is under investigation.
