MANCHESTER, NH - On November 6th, Manchester firefighters arrived to find heavy fire showing from a three-story, wood-frame, six-family dwelling on Dutton Street.

Crews stretched handlines to knock down the heavy fire from the outside while other companies rescued occupants over ground ladders and interior stairs. A fire captain suffered severe burns and was flown to a Boston Hospital, and one tenant perished in the fire.

Command struck three alarms, bringing in all off duty personnel to the scene and mutual aid to cover the city.
