Fire Destroys Hampstead, New Hampshire, House, Family Displaced
A family lost their Hampstead home to a fire Friday morning.
Firefighters arrived to find heavy fire and smoke at the house on Kent Farm Road around 7 a.m., but were pulled back as a second alarm was struck, according to the Professional Firefighters of Londonderry. The smoke was so thick that the house could not be seen.
Deputy Fire Chief William Warnock told WMUR that several additions made to the house made it difficult to extinguish.
According to a GoFundMe account, a knock on the door let the family know the home where they had lived since the '90s was lost.
"Along with irreplaceable memories and mementos, they also lost every basic essential needed for living. Clothing, food, etc. Everything is gone," organizer Melanie Clayton wrote on the page.
The American Red Cross Northern New England Region said it provided disaster health services and comfort kits to the family.
