Candia General Store damaged in electrical fire
The historic Candia General Store was damaged by an electrical fire Tuesday afternoon. Despite the damage, fire officials believe that the building can be saved.Benjamin Klein
Candia Fire Chief Dean Young said that the fire, a two-alarm blaze, is suspected of being caused by an electrical panel in the basement of the store and is not considered suspicious.
Young said that he was quick to the scene of the fire, as he was very close by.
Even if Roy and Marie Martel decide not to reopen the store, Young said he hopes someone else steps up to buy it and reopen the store.
The involvement of mutual aid in providing extra manpower to the scene of fires in Candia is a vital tool in ensuring that fires like the one at the general store are knocked down quickly.
Young said that many of the surrounding towns responded to the second alarm, including fire departments from Deerfield, Auburn, Hooksett, Raymond and Chester.
