One person killed, several others injured Monday in 3-alarm Nashua fire

Nashua Telegraph - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 11:43

NASHUA – One person has died and several others injured, including at least three children and two firefighters, in a fast-moving blaze that swept a French Hill apartment house Monday morning. Firefighters were called to 6-8 Girouard Ave. around 3:45 a.m. after receiving calls reporting a blaze in the multiple-unit building. Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Kerrigan said that the first-arriving crews on Engine and Ladder 1 attempted to rescue a person reported to be trapped inside the building but firefighters were driven back by the heavy fire conditions. The person, whose name and gender weren’t immediately available, perished in the blaze, Kerrigan said. Deputy Fire Chief Brian Rhodes, who responded to the scene when he came on duty Monday morning, said firefighters did all they could to battle through the flames but it quickly became apparent it was too dangerous to continue. “They tried to knock down the heaviest of the fire to effect a search,” Rhodes said.
