Nashua (NH) Fire Rescue, and AMR responded to a call for a structure fire on Meadowbrook Drive. The first crews reported heavy fire in the rear of the building and the basement. Firefighters were hampered due to part of the first floor collapsing and hoarding conditions. Crews extended a ladder to the roof while several firefighters attempted to search the house. After approximately 15 minutes an adult male was found and handed out the first-floor window to firefighters. The man was rushed to a waiting structure where AMR medics began CPR and rushed him to the waiting ambulance. The patient was transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The fire was brought under control after about 30 minutes, and the Nashua Fire Marshal’s Office and NH State Fire Marshal were notified.
