A 25-year-old hiker was fatally injured in a fall Thursday afternoon while coming down the Tuckerman Ravine Trail on Mount Washington, according to Sgt. Mark Ober of New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Heavy rain has collapsed part of an abandoned four-story building on Main Street in Bethlehem, forcing emergency crews to close Route 302.
No one has been injured. WMUR-TV reports a demolition crew is scheduled to arrive this morning to take down the rest of the building, which is over 100 years old. The building is 150 feet long by 50 feet wide.
The building started bowing Thursday afternoon after a strong storm and part of the roof eventually collapsed.
In 2006, Plymouth resident and PSU Music Professor Jonathan Santore was named New Hampshire Composer of the year. Just last month, he was awarded The American Prize in Choral Composition for 2013.

French composer Erik Satie once remarked, "Before I write a piece, I walk around it several times, accompanied by myself," It's a creative prelude that Plymouth composer Jonathan Santore finds absolutely necessary.
A public "scoping" hearing on Northern Pass is being moved from West Stewartstown to Colebrook after the state’s Congressional delegation and Coos County Commissioner Rick Samson raised concerns.
The site is being changed “in response to public requests that raised concerns about insufficient capacity” at a restaurant in West Stewartstown, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The meeting will now be held at the Colebrook Elementary School, 27 Dumont Street from 5 to 8 pm on September 26.
