NORTH CONWAY, NH – There is a Structure fire on Mechanic Street in North Conway. Fire Crews were called to the home of local drug councilor Peter Stone at around 4am yesterday (Wednesday) . Luckily Stone and his family were not at the residence at the time of the fire.
Conway Police closed Mechanic Street from around 5am till 9:30am as crews fought the fire.
North Conway Fire Chief Pat Preece told the Conway Daily Sun that the fire was raging out of all of the windows on the second floor of the building. The frigid temperatures made battling the blaze difficult for fire firefighters, because though no hoses froze the constant spray of water quickly turned outside surfaces slick.
An official with the states fire marshals office told the sun that odds are the building will be considered a total loss. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
