  • After putting out a fire that broke out in the basement of a Camden Avenue home on Monday, Claremont Fire Capt. Chris Pixley, left, talks with Capt. Jeff Morin, middle, as Lt. Scott Kenniston works with firefighters to extinguish hot spots inside the home. The homeowners were not at home when the fire started just before 2:30 p.m. It was extinguished about 30 minutes later. “There was heavy smoke and heat damage on the upper floor and heavy fire damage in the basement,” Claremont Fire Chief Bryan Burr said, adding the damage was “extensive” but the home is “salvageable.” Firefighters tried and failed to revive a dog that was taken from the house. A cat also was found dead inside. (Valley News - James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News. May not be reprinted or used online without permission. Send requests to permission@vnews.com.
