A garage was destroyed and a home damaged in a second-alarm fire Tuesday night in Boscawen, roughly 1,000 feet from the Concord city line.

As of early Wednesday, officials were still investigating the exact cause of the fire.

The garage, which was attached to the residence at 44 Chandler St., was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived on scene just before 7 p.m.

“They were able to stop the fire from extending into the main section of the house,” Interim Concord Fire Chief Guy Newbery said in an interview Wednesday morning. “They cut into the roof in the breezeway that forms an ‘L’ shape from the residence to the garage, and they vented the fire there.”

Concord firefighters, who assisted Boscawen first responders, said there was some minimal damage to the home, which property records indicate was built in 1990. At the time of the fire, no vehicles were parked in the garage, which is likely a total loss, Newbery said.

Residents and one pet were home at the time but no one was injured, officials said. 

The home is owned by Miles Dennis-Proulx and Kylie Grenier, according to property records.

In addition to Concord fire, the towns of Canterbury, Hopkinton and Webster responded. Penacook Rescue also provided aid.

Firefighters declared the blaze under control by 8 p.m., approximately an hour after the 911 call.
