HUDSON – As the investigation continues into the late-April fire that damaged a Boyd Road home and various items scattered on the front lawn, police and fire officials are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them.

A look around the property prompted officials to classify the fire as suspicious, police said. They didn’t say whether investigators have determined how the fire started, or if any accelerants or incendiary devices may have been used.

Firefighters were called to the home, 57 Boyd Road, around 5:30 p.m. April 26 and “discovered part of the house and items on the front lawn were on fire,” police said.

Crews were able to extinguish the flames in a short time, and it appears the damage was limited to the items on the lawn and a porch or deck attached to the residence.

Investigators ask anyone with any additional information on the incident to contact police Detective William Kew at 603-816-2243, or wkew@hudsonnh.gov.
