Concord apartment fire injures people

CONCORD, NH – Two people were burned in a fire at a Morning Star Condominiums apartment on Loudon Road on Tuesday.

At around 2:30 a.m., the police dispatch began receiving calls about a fire inside an apartment, with a woman accused of starting a fire and a man being burned, according to scanner chatter. The police dispatch warned officers that there was a language barrier.

When officers arrived at the building, they found smoke inside and a man with burns to his legs in a stairwell. The officer said the fire appeared to be out but there was a lot of smoke in the building.

Paramedics provided advanced care to two patients with burns and smoke inhalation. They were then taken to Concord Hospital. Firefighters confirmed the fire had been extinguished inside the apartment and there was no extension. The building was ventilated, the alarm reset, and the Commanding Officer requested fire prevention at the scene.

Chief Sean Brown said the fire appeared to be accidental. One victim, he said, required air medical transport for further care, but specific details were not known as of Tuesday. Brown said the fire damage was limited to the original apartment and other tenants were allowed to return to the building.
