Firefighters fight 3-alarm Pittsfield fire


PITTSFIELD - Firefighters from several communities fought a three-alarm fire in a house near Globe Manufacturing Co. in Pittsfield Thursday morning.
..
Firefighters doused hotspots after putting out the fire in a house at 9 Shackford Court.
..
The owner of the house was treated at the scene for superficial burns to his face. Early reports from Pittsfield Chief Nicholas Abell indicated the fire started on a porch and then climbed to the second floor and attic.
..
A metal roof on the house trapped the flames and heat inside, making it more difficult to control.
..
Responding to the three-alarm fire were units from Pittsfield, Allenstown, Pembroke, Hooksett, Bow, Canterbury, Concord, Chichester, Epsom, Northwood, Alton, Gilmanton and Barnstead.
..
A wrecker had to be called in to pull out a Concord aerial truck stuck in soft ground nearby.
