Month after massive NH bar fire, removal of rubble set to begin
PORTSMOUTH — City Attorney Robert Sullivan revealed plans Monday to remove the rubble caused by the fire that destroyed the State Street Saloon about five weeks ago.
City workers will start removing the rubble located on State and Pleasant streets Wednesday, according to Seacoastonline.
The removal is expected to take three days, but Sullivan said it would continue until the area is cleared.
Once the debris is cleared, the hole in the remaining foundation will be filled with sand.
The rubble has been left untended to since the April 10 fire burned down two buildings and damaged another. Along with the State Street Saloon, the buildings also housed apartments.
Although the third building is still standing, no plans for repairs have been revealed yet.
Discussions for relocating the State Street Saloon will continue as removal of the former location begins Wednesday.
