Youngsters shoot at cars with paintball guns

LACONIA — Three teenaged boys were arrested Monday at 4 p.m. for shooting at passing cars with paint ball guns on Academy Street.

Police said the three unnamed juveniles all face charges of reckless conduct while two face charges of simple assault because one passing motorist had their window open and was struck by a paint ball.

All of the paint ball guns were confiscated. Police said all of the parents involved were very cooperative.

Police said the paint can be washed off from a car but will leave a welt at the impact site and stain clothing.

Baldwin St. fire quickly extinguished

LACONIA – Fire Chief Ken Erickson said too much insulation likely caused the thimble for a wood stove to overheat and ignite some woodwork between the walls last night at a home at 48 Baldwin Street at 7 p.m.

"There was nowhere for the heat to dissipate," he said.

Erickson said a woman and her child noticed some smoke coming from the wall and called 911.

Firefighters responded, noticed the smoke and determined the cause.

Erickson said there was a small fire in the wall that was extinguished. He said the damage to the home is minimal and the family will be able to stay there.
