Fire at Seabrook Beach, Catalano’s Market

Below is the description, from the Seabrook Fire Department,of the massive fire at Seabrook Beach that destroyed Catalano’s Market. Our sincere thanks to the Seabrook Fire Department personnel, as well as those from surrounding communities, that battled this blaze in truly difficult conditions. Chief William Edwards was on the site at 3:30 am, and did a great job managing the scene, with Deputy Koko Perkins. We managed to get through this event with none of our people injured. Our thoughts and prayers are with those displaced by the fire, and to the Catalano family.

On March 15 we had a 3-Alarm Fire at Catalano’s Market on the corner of River Street and Rte 1a. We were notified of the fire at 3:13am. We had extremely cold temperatures mixed with 40-50mph winds. The structure was well involved upon arrival. Luckily all residents were able to get out prior to our arrival.

The environmental conditions and building construction made extinguishing the fire and initial fire attack very difficult. We were able to keep the fire from spreading to adjacent buildings. No residents or firefighters were hurt.

We are extremely thankful of the following departments from 3 states that came to our aid this morning.
Seabrook Fire Department would like to thank the Seabrook Police Department, Seabrook Water Department, Seabrook DPW, North Hampton Fire, Hampton Fire, Hampton Falls Fire, Exeter Fire, East Kingston Fire, South Hampton Fire, Kensington Fire, Portsmouth Fire, Rye Fire, Amesbury Fire, Salisbury Fire, Newbury Fire, Newburyport Fire, York Rehab Unit, and Seacoast Chiefs Fire Officer Mutual Aid.

All in all we had 14 different communities respond and roughly 40-50 firefighters on scene.

Our thoughts are with the Catalano’s during this difficult time.
