Small fire snuffed at Sig Sauer


PORTSMOUTH — A small fire in a firing range in the Sig Sauer building on Pease Boulevard drew a small response on Tuesday evening.

Portsmouth fire Capt. Todd Germain said the fire, caused by gunpowder residue, was out before fire crews arrived.

Crews were called to check on the extinguished fire, which caused enough smoke to set off the alarm system.

He said everyone was back in the building before fire crews left the scene around 7 p.m. and outside of the firing range there is no damage to the building.Fire crews were on scene for less than 20 minutes, he said.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
