HENNIKER, N.H. (AP) - A fire has destroyed a fleet of snow plows in the New Hampshire town of Henniker, as another storm approaches that could dump up to a foot more of snow.

The fire broke out at the Henniker Town Garage on Friday night after all the plows had finished clearing snow from the streets.

“This puts the town in a bad spot,” Henniker Fire Chief Steve Burritt said. “The town has a serious problem for snow removal. Not that there isn’t a solution, but it’s going to be a challenge.”

No injuries were reported.

The only remaining heavy equipment were two pickup trucks and a front-end loader, which were parked outside and spared from the blaze.

The forecast was calling for 8 to 12 inches of snow on Monday, following the recent blizzard that buried parts of New England under several feet of snow.

“It’s going to be a real pain if we get snow on Monday,” Burritt told the Concord Monitor (https://bit.ly/1EVnTMr ).
