No injuries were reported, but the building was destroyed in the blaze.

Photos showed multiple ladder trucks at a very active scene with flames lighting up the night sky.

According to Hunter's Snop n' Save's website, it is a family-owned, independent grocery store located directly across from the marine on Lake Winnipesaukee in the heart of Wolfeboro, offering "friendly, neighborhood service with supermarket prices."

Another Wolfeboro business, Lucas Roasting Company, posted on its Facebook page that news of the fire "breaks our hearts completely in half."

"We have no idea how many fire companies responded tonight, but we've never seen so many fire trucks in one place," the post continued. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all impacted and our community at-large. This is such a painful loss for our community."

"Such a huge loss in our little town," resident Jeannine Tully Santerre commented. "My son works there. I am so sad for all the employees there."

"Terrible loss," added Candy Sharp. "thank you to all of the responders on this cold night."

Poor People's Pub, a local restaurant, posted on its Facebook page that it is offering free meals to Hunters' employees for the entire month of January.

"Hunter's is a long time pillar in our lakes region community and coming together in times of need is what this community is all about," the restaurant said.
