Apartment building fire in Northfield displaces residents

The Tilton-Northfield Fire Department responded to an apartment building fire Monday night that displaced eight families in Northfield. No one was injured.

The fire broke out in the basement of an eight-unit apartment complex at 10 Dearborn Road about 7:45 p.m. The fire began in the basement laundry room and spread to a first-floor apartment unit through a pipe. The fire was put out by 11:30 p.m. The basement had a partial sprinkler system in the laundry and boiler rooms, which helped contain the fire, said fire Chief Bradley Ober in a release.

All eight families living in the complex have been displaced, but the building’s management helped them find temporary housing, according to the release.

The Tilton-Northfield Fire Department was holding department training when the fire broke out and was able to dispatch additional personnel to the scene. Firefighters from Franklin, Sanbornton, Belmont, Laconia and Gilford, as well as the Tilton, Northfield and state police assisted at the scene.
