This was taken at a very bad 6 alarm fire last night in South Hampton, NH at about 7:00pm. Many buildings were lost, the good news is no one was hurt! The Local HN news station used this shot and 2 others on their morning news andgave me credit!

SOUTH HAMPTON, N.H. -- A fast-moving fire tore through at least two buildings at the site of an antique warehouse Tuesday night.

The fire broke out at about 6:45 p.m., and moved quickly through the wood-framed buildings, firefighters said. The property, located on Route 150, is owned by Nor'east Architectural Antiques.

Without any nearby hydrants, fire crews were forced to call in tankers. One firefighter was treated after overheating.

The state fire marshal's office has been called to the scene. So far there is no word on the amount of damaged caused or what may have started the fire.
