HAMPSTEAD, NH - A three-alarm fire caused major damage to a large farmhouse on November 10th. Firefighters arrived to find heavy fire in the rear of the barn that quickly spread to the main home. First due firefighters discovered some family members were still asleep inside, unaware of the fire. A second-alarm and extra ladder were called on arrival at around 7:00 A.M. Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack, but eventually were pulled from the main house to go exterior as heavy fire came through the roof. A third-alarm was transmitted for manpower, and the fire is under investigation.
