Fire destroys house involved in drug investigation in New Hampshire; officials unsure of cause


FARMINGTON, New Hampshire — Officials say a house in New Hampshire that was at the center of a drug investigation has burned to the ground.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1ImVK6M ) firefighters were called to the Farmington home around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday. Fire Chief Tom Bonneau says nearly a dozen fire departments battled the blaze.

The house was being investigated on July 9 when police said they found 400 marijuana plants and an inactive methamphetamine lab inside. It's not clear if the drug bust and fire are connected.

Bonneau says he doesn't know how or where the fire started, but says it's possible that chemicals were involved.

The fire is being investigated by the state Fire Marshal's Office.
