2 families displaced after Manchester apartment fire


MANCHESTER - A Monday morning fire on Eastern Avenue displaced two families after their apartment were left uninhabitable.

Fire crews arrive on scene at 133 Eastern Ave. around 8:30 a.m. and it took about 20 minutes to knockdown the fire, which had started in the ceiling of a third-floor apartment and had spread to the attic.

The fire was contained to the third-floor apartment but smoke and water damage left that apartment and the one below it unable to be occupied.

There were two cats in the third-floor apartment that also were rescued.

The fire is believed to have started from an electrical problem.

Red Cross is assisting the families and the building has been turned back over to the owners.
