On March 25th at 18:58, the Hanover Fire Department was dispatched to 2 Algonquin Trail for a fire alarm activation. Three minutes later the call was automatically upgraded to a 1st alarm, as the dispatch center received a 911 call reporting a kitchen fire.

​Hanover Fire Chief Martin McMillan arrived on scene within four minutes and was met outside by four occupants. The Chief reported visible fire in the kitchen, coming from the stovetop. Chief McMillan entered the home and utilized a dry chemical extinguisher to knock the fire down. The first arriving Hanover Engine stretched a single 1 ¾” handline and confirmed the fire was extinguished. Hanover personnel remained on scene for approximately one hour, ventilating the home, securing utilities, and conducting salvage and overhaul.

​Investigation found the cause of the fire to be accidental in nature. Combustible material was positioned on top of the range, which was a contributing factor.

​“This fire was quickly extinguished due to multiple factors,” said Captain Josh Merriam. “A monitored fire alarm system, alert occupant, and rapid response kept this fire confined to the area of origin.” “The adult occupant quickly exited the building with three minors, ensuring their safety. After evacuating 911 was called and responding personnel were notified of the kitchen fire.”

​As a reminder, it is important to ensure that nothing combustible is stored on top of, or near, cooking appliances.

​There were no reported civilian or firefighter injuries.

While the fire was contained to the area of origin, the home did sustain minor smoke damage.

On March 17th at 12:04, the Hanover Fire Department was dispatched to 27 Mulherrin Farm Rd for a reported structure fire. Hanover Fire Department personnel were on scene within seven minutes and reported smoke showing from a garage, that was attached to a 2 ½ story single family structure.

Firefighters were met outside by the occupants who reported that everyone had been able to evacuate.

A single handline was stretched into the garage for fire suppression. Crews were able to stop the fire from extending into the house. The fire was declared under control within ten minutes, with crews remaining on scene for overhaul. One civilian did sustain minor injuries while attempting to extinguish the fire. There were no firefighter injuries.

The home was equipped with working smoke alarms, which were sounding during the 911 call.

Investigation of the fire found the cause to be the improper disposal of wood stove ashes. The Hanover Fire Department would like to remind everyone that ash and coals should be placed into a covered metal container, wet down, and stored outside away from all combustibles.

The Hanover Fire Department was assisted by the Lebanon, Lyme, Norwich, and Hartford Fire Departments.

While the garage sustained moderate damage, the house remains habitable.

Missing Man Recovered from Ct. River

TOWN: Hanover

On Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at approximately 10:00 am, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Dept. Dive Team recovered the body of a man from the Connecticut River near Hanover, NH. Roger Blake, 74, of Norwich, Vt. was found downstream of his residence.

Blake been out on January 2, 2023 raking and tidying up his lawn. He was last seen by family members around 3:00 pm that day. Around 5:00 pm, the family noticed he hadn’t come inside and became worried. They noticed a rake halfway down a steep embankment heading toward the river. The family immediately called for assistance as they felt he might have fallen into the river. Immediate response was initiated by the Hanover Fire and Rescue personnel and assisted by Norwich Police, Norwich Fire, Hartford Fire and Lebanon Fire Departments. They were unable to locate Blake that evening.

The NH Fish and Game Conservation Officer Dive Team, members of the Hanover Fire Department and the NH Marine Patrol responded to the scene the following morning.
