Fire Forces Evacuation at Airport
Londonderry, MA – A small fire at the Sam Adams Pub at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport shortly before 11:00pm Thursday led to the evacuation of less than 100 people. Londonderry police officers forced their way into the pub’s back room, and with a fire extinguisher, knocked down the electrical fire which was sparked from a freezer unit’s motor, Londonderry fire Capt. Jim Carrier said. Londonderry fire and the airport fire departments responded to the scene. Firefighters monitored the air for oxygen and carbon monoxide and, after finding the levels safe, reopened the terminal. Employees and others were evacuated from the terminal for 15 to 20 minutes. No flights were affected by the incident.
