New Hampshire State Fire Marshal Paul J. Parisi, Seabrook Fire Chief William Edwards and Seabrook Police Chief Brett Walker announce that on March 10, 2021 at 2216 hours a neighbor reported a fire in a home located at 21 Spruce Court. Seabrook Fire and Police units responded to the scene and the first on scene police officer was able to rescue one resident from the home, that person has been transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment.  The fire was able to be extinguished, however one occupant of the residence was unable to escape and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The New Hampshire Fire Marshal’s Office and Seabrook Police Department are investigating the incident.  An autopsy was conducted at Concord Hospital today at 0830 hours, the cause of death is smoke inhalation and the manner of death is accidental. At this time the victim has not been positively identified.

State Fire Marshal Parisi wants to remind everyone to maintain working smoke alarms in their homes, keep exits clear of debris, have your heating systems inspected and maintained on an annual basis and keep at least a three to five foot clearance around any heating appliance from other combustible materials.  If you have any questions about fire safety in your homes please contact your local fire department or the NH State Fire Marshal’s Office.
