Merrimack barn destroyed in morning fire

106 Wire Road, Merrimack NH

MERRIMACK - A large barn was destroyed by fire on Friday morning at a property on Wire Road.

The two-alarm fire broke out around 6 a.m. at 106 Wire Rd. One of the occupants of the residence noticed that the barn was on fire and informed his father, who quickly retrieved a hose to try and contain the blaze, said fire officials.

A large recreational vehicle that was housed inside of the barn was completely totalled, according to Fire Chief Michael Currier, who said the fire likely originated in the rear of the RV.

A second RV was removed from the area before the fire spread, but firefighters still had to deal with several propane cylinders housed inside of the burning barn.

"We were concerned with the home on the property and a neighboring house," said Currier.  Both of those residences were evacuated as a precaution.

The cause of the fire is yet undetermined, but Currier said it does not appear suspicious. It took firefighters about 40 minutes to knock down the blaze.

Firefighters from Nashua, Manchester, Bedford, Amherst and Hollis assisted at the scene, while crews from Milford and Londonderry provided station coverage.

A portion of Wire Road was closed during fire. There were no injuries, according to Currier.
