On 6/17/2021, Merrimack Fire Rescue crews were dispatched to a reported building fire in the northwest area of town in the evening hours. While en route, dispatch relayed that there were people jumping out of windows; a working fire dispatch was requested. On Engine 1's arrival, they reported a fully involved building on the shore of Baboosic Lake and called for a second alarm. Due to the high heat and unknown number of potential victims, additional ambulances were called to the scene throughout the incident, with ambulances from Bedford, Amherst, Nashua, Milford, and Hudson responding to the scene. Companies operated defensively after a quick primary search was attempted and abandoned due to the heavy fire conditions.
