GOFFSTOWN, NH – Goffstown Fire Department responded to Daniel Plummer Road at approximately 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 6 for a reported building fire at Lemay & Sons Beef Steak Out.

 
Upon arrival, crews encountered heavy fire and smoke showing. Due to the extensive nature of the fire, hoses had to be run to a water supply more than 2,000 feet away, hindering initial attacks on the fire. The fire quickly spread to three alarms, bringing mutual aid from several towns.
