Blaze destroys home in Keene; cause undetermined

KEENE — An unoccupied single family home on Rule Street was destroyed in a two-alarm blaze Monday morning.

Deputy Fire Chief Ronald Leslie said the fire at 72 Rule St., reported at 12:47 a.m., went to a second alarm when firefighters arrived three minutes later and saw the building in flames.

"There was a partial collapse in the rear of the building," he said.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

The residence, built in 1945, is owned by Juanita Kern of Severn, Md., according to the city's online assessor's database. The building is assessed at $4,300, while the total property assessment, including .19 acre, is $53,000.
