Multiple Brush Fires on the Everett Turnpike

MERRIMACK, New Hampshire - On November 12, 2023, at approximately 1:30 p.m., Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks responded to multiple brush fires on the F.E. Everett Turnpike.  A witness reported a yellow Mack Truck with “Kallwall” lettering written on the side panels, traveling Southbound with flames intermittently bursting from the exhaust pipes and starting brush fires at multiple locations on the side of the highway.

Merrimack Fire Department responded and was assisted by both Nashua and Bedford Fire Departments to put out the fires which started to catch deeper into the wood line.  In several locations the flames approached residential properties.  The right-hand travel lane was closed in several locations for approximately 30 minutes as crews worked to extinguish the flames.

Troopers are working to locate the responsible party for this incident.  Anyone with any information related to this incident is asked to contact Trooper Perciballi at (603) 271-3636.
