One person was hospitalized late Thursday afternoon after a structure fire in a unit at the Foxwell I senior apartments, according to Fire Chief David O’Brien. The fire was contained to a resident’s apartment, O'Brien said. Firefighters pulled the person from the apartment within minutes of entry, the chief added. O’Brien said he did not immediately know the condition of the person who was transported to Portsmouth Regional Hospital. The Maine Fire Marshal’s office was on scene Thursday night at 21 Manson Ave., investigating the cause of the fire. A report of loud noises inside the unit — described as “pops,” according to O’Brien — was called into the town fire department at 4:09 p.m. The call was upgraded to a two-alarm structure fire shortly thereafter.
