Cars crash into buildings, riverbank rescue make busy night for Nashua emergency crews
NASHUA — Police and firefighters were busy in Nashua on Tuesday night with several downtown incidents.
At about 4:20 p.m., firefighters responded to a reported fire at the Cotton Mill Square apartment building on Front Street. Deputy fire chief Glen MacDonald said a kitchen fire in apartment 708 resulted in water damage to seven other apartments in the building next to the Nashua River.
A car drove into 152 Concord St., near the intersection of the Henri Burque Highway about 9:11, causing moderate damage.
Another vehicle crashed into 117 Walnut St. after hitting a parked car. The car eventually rolled over onto its side.
MacDonald said there were no injuries in either vehicle incident.
Firefighters also assisted Nashua police with removing a person from the riverbank near the intersection of Temple Street and Cottage Avenue.
"We did set up rope hauling system. We put a harness on a patient and assisted the patient up the embankment," MacDonald said.
MacDonald said the person was taken by ambulance to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.
