Fires burn Christian center on Easter

A fire in a New Hampshire town damaged dozens of wood buildings in a 146-year-old Christian center, according to the Associated Press.

The fire, which started around 4:30 p.m. at the Alton Bay Christian Conference Center on Lake Winnipesaukee in Alton Bay, was under control by about 8:30 p.m.

State Fire Marshal William Degnan told AP that no civilians were injured. One firefighter was hurt when a propane tank exploded, and others were treated for smoke inhalation or exhaustion.

Degnan said the strong lake winds helped spread the fire.

The center was founded in 1863. It features cottages, a 70-room motel and a park for recreational vehicles, according to AP.
