NH Authorities Investigating 2 Intentionally Set Fires at Same Location

No injuries were reported in either fire


Authorities in New Hampshire are asking for the public's help as they continue to investigate two intentionally-set fires at the same location.

Both fires occurred in a large, unoccupied home at 1459 Dover Road (Route 4) in Epsom. The first fire was on Jan. 31 around 2:30 p.m. and the second was on April 11 around 3:51 p.m.

According to the Concord Monitor, the home has been for sale for several years. The building is a total loss after this week's fire and is now expected to be demolished.
