UPDATE: More than 40 firefighters helped fight lumber yard fire

Posted:

MANCHESTER (KWWL) -- Firefighters have new details in a Christmas morning lumber yard fire.

The Manchester Fire Chief said it took at least four hours to put out the blaze at Hutchison Lumber Company.

It damaged several semi-trucks, and caused more than $1.5 million in damage.

A passerby saw the flames early Saturday morning and called 9-1-1. Firefighters from Manchester, Delaware, Delhi, and Greely helped put out the blaze.

The State Fire Marshall's office will begin its investigation Monday. There is still no word on how the fire got started.
