COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials have concluded that air pollution standards were not violated when two buildings were burned down at the Balsams Resort last January as part of a renovation.
A Department of Environmental Services official says the conclusion is partly based on the word of Colebrook fire officials who said all materials that could have caused air pollution were removed from the dormitory and a factory once used to make rubber products before the fire was started.
New Hampshire Public Radio reports that the state is fining Colebrook fire officials $2,601 for failing to tell DES about the fire beforehand and not having a state-approved inspector present.
