Nashua couple displaced after early morning fire damages home

NASHUA – An early morning fire severely damaged a 21⁄2-story, single-family home, leaving it uninhabitable, according to Daniel Cronin, deputy chief of Nashua Fire Rescue.

Cronin said the department responded to the fire at 3 Doncaster Drive about 12:30 a.m. and found fire and smoke showing in the basement and extending to the main and second floors, causing extensive fire, smoke and heat damage. The fire was brought under control about an hour after crews arrived.

Cronin said smoke alarms were in working order at the home, and the cause of the blaze is under investigation by the Nashua fire marshal’s office.

While no one was home at the time, Cronin said the couple who lived at the house arrived while firefighters were on the scene.

The two-alarm blaze resulted in the loss of almost everything in the home, and the Red Cross was called in to aid the family, Cronin said.
