Small fire stomped out

NASHUA – A small fire broke out early Wednesday morning, leaving the occupant of 8 Dearborn St. in need of medical attention.

Just before 4 a.m., Nashua Fire Rescue responded for a report of an extinguished fire and, upon the arrival of Engine 2, it was reported that they had an extinguished fire in a small 4-by-4-foot entryway.

The small fire was contained to a small pile of newspapers, a cardboard box and a small electric heater, leaving minor damage to the building. No occupants were displaced.

The occupant stated to NFR that she had stomped the fire out with her foot. As a result, she suffered minor burns to her feet and possible smoke inhalation. She was then transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center evaluation.

The Nashua Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the blaze.
