2nd Alarm on Ash Street
Nov 24, 2009

Nashua firefighters battled a 2 alarm fire in the early hours of October 29, 2009. Just after 0500 hours fire alarm dispatchers received a 911 call reporting smoke coming from the building at 81 Ash Street. Engine Co. 4, Engine Co. 2, and Ladder Co. 2 along with Deputy Chief Allison and the Safety Officer responded on the initial dispatch. Nashua Police arrived on scene and confirmed smoke smoking. Fire Alarm dispatched Engine and Ladder Co. 1 on the working fire assignment. Companies arrived at 2 story wood frame with and encountered a working fire in the basement. There was no exterior access (including windows) to the basement which hindered interior suppression efforts. Crews were required to cut interior ventilation holes on the first floor before the fire was contained. A second alarm was transmitted and Engine Co. 5 was dispatched to bring additional personal to assist at the scene. The Nashua Fire Marshal's office investigated the fire and determined the cause to be from items stored to close to the furnace.
