Crews find victims on first floor
BRIDGEWATER, N.H. — Two people were killed in a house fire on River Road in Bridgewater early Monday morning.
Firefighters were called to the scene around 12:45 a.m., but said they had a hard time entering the house because there was limited visibility. Crews found the victims on the first floor.
Neighbors said the couple, believed to be in their 60s or 70s, had recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Their names have not been released.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials said the flames may have started around a wood stove or chimney, or possibly in the laundry room.
