Firefighters Battle 3 Oil Tankers on Fire in Epping, NH

Firefighters from several Seacoast fire companies are working to put out a fire involving three oil tankers and a tractor trailer Saturday.

The fire at North Atlantic Fuels on Depot Road in Epping just off Route 101 was fanned by winds gusting to 11 mph which made for a real feel temperature of a chilly 30 degrees, according to the Exeter Fire Department, one of the responding fire companies.

The crash truck from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport was also brought in with 500 gallons of foam to extinguish the flames. The Southeastern New Hampshire Hazardous Materials Mutual Aid District also responded to the fire.

The fire was under control as of 7 p.m., according to the Exeter Fire Department.

No injuries have been reported to anyone involved with extinguishing the flames.

North Atlantic Fuels is located on a 20 acre facility and has been processing and delivering firewood since 2007, according to their website.
