Brookline, NH - Brookline firefighters were dispatched to a reported structure fire on Townsend Hill Road on November 10th. Crews arrived to find heavy fire showing from a large barn, threatening to extend into the main house. A second and third alarm were transmitted quickly.

Crews did a great job at saving the house and keeping the fire from extending into the dwelling. Crews remained on scene for several hours hitting hot spots. An excavator was called in to demolish the barn due to unstable conditions.
