Welcome to my attempt at keeping the masses up to date

Please note: my blog is full of my thoughts, opinions (which are not always "right"), random things relating to my family and friends and the occasional Cut and Paste news.... whatever is important to me. I ramble on from time to time (that's the St. Sauveur in me) and at the end of whatever I wrote you may question what on earth I was thinking or it may not even make sense to you.....sorry....I warned you. You may not always like what you read (I do have an insane case of "Potty Mouth" which I try to hide on here, but it won't always happen) or what you see, but we all have our own opinions on things. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. I do ask that you please leave your name so I know who I'm responding to. If you want to email me privately you may do so at Thanks

Dozens of Homes Burn; Route 11 Closed

ALTON BAY, N.H. -- Heavy fire ignited on Easter Sunday at the Alton Bay Christian Conference Center amid windy conditions, prompting multiple alarms and a road closure.

By 5:15 p.m., crews called for seven alarms. Within minutes, an eighth and ninth alarm were called. Alton Bay's deputy fire chief told News 9 that 52 homes in the area were burned and all of the homes could be a total loss.

The fire prompted officials to close westbound Route 11 from Gilford to Alton. Calls initially came in as a brush fire before it quickly escalated.

It was not immediately reported whether anyone was inside.

Refresh often and watch WMUR News 9 TONIGHT at 6 for the latest updates.
