Chocorua Fire Closes Route 16

Firefighters worked to combat a fire at 11 Runnells Hall Road in the early afternoon today. Route 16 had to be temporarily shutdown so that firehoses could be run across the road. The building appears to be the former location of Mari’s Treasures in Chocorua. American Red Cross New Hampshire and Vermont reported having trained volunteers on scene to assist and promised to provide food, shelter, clothing, mental health counseling and referral services as needed.
