Just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday Laconia, Gilford, and Belmont firefighters were dispatched to 1187 Weirs Boulevard for a fire in Alicia’s Café.
When the fire truck and firefighters from the Weirs Beach Station arrived at the scene, smoke could be seen coming from the attic of the single-story building. As crews made access to the attic they found heavy fire, but they were able to put out the flames quickly which stopped the fire from spreading, Beattie said. The rest of the building suffered smoke and water damage.
The fire is still under investigation, but the cause appears to be accidental, Beattie said.
No firefighter was injured in the Weirs Beach fire, though one civilian was transported with a minor medical condition. Estimated was damage at $60,000, Beattie said.
Laconia Fire was assisted at the scene by Laconia Police, Gilford and Belmont fire departments and Meredith EMS. Meredith and Tilton-Northfield fire departments, along with Meredith EMS provided coverage.
