​ Nashua Fire Rescue responded to a fire alarm street box activation at the corner of Jefferson Street and Tolles Street. Engine 1 arrived at the intersection and found a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria burning in a narrow driveway close to the building at 116 Tolles Street. The bulk of the fire consumed the engine compartment. There was damage to the window and window casing of the single story brick building belonging to Danis Construction. Engine 1 and Ladder 1 extinguished and overhauled the vehicle fire. Engine 4 forced entry into the building to check conditions. They found a smoke condition in the building. A second hose line was stretched into the building. The fire did not extend beyond the window. The building was ventilated to remove the smoke. There were no injuries. The vehicle owner rented the parking space from Danis construction. The cause of the fire did not appear to be suspicious.
