Snow plows go up in smoke

Snow Plows Go Up In Smoke
Fire destroys Henniker, New Hampshire's snow plow fleet as huge storm approaches.

HENNIKER, N.H. (NECN) A collapsed roof and multiple charred plow trucks are what’s left after a fire destroyed a New Hampshire town’s public works building.

“For a moment, we thought about trying to get the trucks out of there, but the smoke was too heavy in the building, said Henniker Fire Chief Steve Burrit. “It was too dangerous to go in there and try and remove the trucks.”

Only three pieces of equipment were salvaged. To make matters worse, the town is expecting more snow to cover their 85 miles of roadway.

Fortunately, Town Administrator Christine Trovato says assistance came almost instantly.

“Hopkington, Hillsborough, the town of Ware, Bradford, the state,” she listed. “They’ve all offered equipment to help.”
