    Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that burned down a two-story vacant mill building in New Hampshire.

    Foster's Daily Democrat reports firefighters received a call of a massive fire at the former Great Falls Bleachery and Dye Works building in Somersworth on Monday night. They battled the fire into Tuesday morning. Flames could be seen from the downtown area.

    Somersworth Fire Chief Keith Hoyle said the structure is fairly isolated, and there were no reported injuries.

    Fire crews from Rochester, Newington, Rollinsford and Dover along with Maine companies from Berwick and North Berwick assisted Somersworth.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
