Fire Fighters respond to structure fire at 208 Old Dover Road

On Sunday, January 22 at 1:26 PM, the Rochester Fire Department was dispatched to 208 Old Dover Road for a reported building fire.

Engine 5, Truck 6, and Engine 4 arrived on the scene to find a working fire in the attic and second floor of a single-family home that was set back from the road.

After being alerted to the fire by their smoke alarms, two occupants and one pet evacuated the building with the assistance of Rochester Police. While the occupants exited, a police officer also used a fire extinguisher to slow the spread of the fire down the staircase.

The fire was extinguished with the 1st Alarm assignment, and no injuries were reported. The residence was left uninhabitable due to fire, smoke, and water damage.

Rochester Fire was assisted on scene by Frisbie EMS, Rochester Police, Somersworth Fire, Dover Fire, Berwick Fire, Barrington Fire, Farmington Fire, Milton Fire, Sanford Fire, and off-duty Rochester Firefighters provided station coverage. 1-800-Board-up and the American Red Cross assisted the occupants with immediate needs.

Rochester officials completed their investigation on Sunday, January 29, labeling the cause of the fire as “undetermined”, however, officials say the incident was not suspicious in nature.
