School buses destroyed in Christmas fire


BRADFORD, N.H. — A fire in a Goffstown Truck Center Inc. facility destroyed several school buses and damaged others on Christmas morning. The fire is being considered suspicious, although an electrical issue has not been ruled out.

According to the Concord Monitor, a line of eight buses was charred and gutted by the flames, and a second line of buses was melted. The buses lost in the fire were worth approximately $1 million.

According to The Associated Press, Goffstown Truck Center is working with the district to ensure that transportation is available for students when classes resume after the winter holiday. 

No one was injured in the fire.
