SUV Fire Leaves Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Condo Uninhabitable
A vehicle fire spread to a two-unit condo in Portsmouth, causing heavy damage Thursday afternoon and leaving the home uninhabitable.
Portsmouth Fire Chief William McQuillen said the fire at 72 Woodbury Avenue was reported around 2:15 p.m., and had already spread from the engine compartment of an SUV to the building by the time the first firefighters arrived. The fire went up the siding to the second floor and attic of the building.
It took fire crews about 30 minutes to bring the blaze under control
One unit was heavily damaged by the fire, while the second was "moderately damaged," according to McQuillen. The fire left five people displaced.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation. The chief did not disclose the identities of those living at the coon.
