Fire Damages Businesses at New Hampshire Strip Mall, Officials Investigate

Investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire that broke out at a New Hampshire strip mall.

Fire officials say none of the stores were open at the time and there were no injuries. WMUR-TV reports firefighters responded early Wednesday and about 20 firefighters from surrounding communities responded to the scene in Kingston, N.H.

Fire Chief Bill Seaman says the fire was brought under control in about an hour.

Devendra Patel, who owns the market where the fire broke out, says his store will be closed for a while. Patel estimates he’s lost three to four weeks of business.

Investigators say they would be looking through the scene of the fire through Wednesday evening.
