May 23, 2019

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Firefighters have knocked down a fire that appears to have started in a wall at a hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Everyone was safely evacuated Thursday morning from the Anchorage Inn and Suites on Woodbury Avenue. No injuries were reported.

After knocking the fire down, firefighters dug into the outside wall to look into the interior and pour water on it, to make sure there were no fires hidden inside the walls.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire.
