A nursing home in New Hampshire has been placed on lockdown after an arsonist burned down the home’s basement.
The New Hampshire Nurses Association says it is “deeply saddened” by the fire that broke out on Monday morning.
It says the family of the arsonist is in custody.
It says the arson took place in the basement of the nursing home on the second floor.
The home was being used as a home for residents with dementia and other disabilities.
The blaze destroyed four of the five homes in the building, according to the association.
It’s not clear how long the fire had been going on.
The association says it’s also concerned about the safety of other residents.
