On Saturday, June 25th the New London Fire Department was requested to assist with a dormitory fire owned by Proctor Academy located at 22 Lawrence Street.  The Andover Chief requested 3 alarms, bring in apparatus and personnel from Wilmot, Sutton, Franklin, Tilton-Northfield, Belmont, Salisbury, Boswen, Sanbornton, Hill, Danbury and Bristol. Not only did firefighters battle the heavy fire conditions on arrival, but warm temperatures took a toll as well, hence the number of towns needed.   Above, Lt. Geoff Daley and FF Gary Faccone head up the ladder to vent the roof, as multiple hand lines were utilized to extinguish the fire.
