Hanover fire causes minor injury


HANOVER – One person suffered minor burns in a North Park Street fire Thursday night.


Firefighters responded to the first-alarm fire at 18 North Park St. about 9:41 p.m.  At the scene they found a small fire on the second floor of the multi-family dwelling, which was quickly estinguished.


One victim was treated on scene for minor burns, but the fire could have been much worse, said Hanover Fire Captain Michael Gilbert.

"Early notification and a quick response resulted in minimal property loss," he said.


There were no reported firefighter injuries.   The cause of the fire is being investigated but is not deemed suspicious, Gilbert said.


Lebanon and Hartford, Vermont, fire departments responded to the scene with ladder trucks. Hanover Police, Dartmouth Safety and Security, and Dartmouth Facilities, Operations, and Management also assisted at the scene.


A fire engine from Lyme and a ladder truck from Norwich, Vt., provided station coverage during the fire response.
