MANCHESTER - A 3-alarm fire that started in the back of a city apartment building destroyed the three-story structure.
According to fire officials, crews responded to an alarm just after 11 p.m. Friday night. A second alarm sounded because of the extreme cold and wind weather conditions. Once the fire consumed the attic, a third alarm was toned.
Eight tenants were in the building at the time of the fire, and three cats and one dog were also rescued, according to fire officials.
Neighbors say families with young children also live in the building.
The fire was under control at about 1 a.m. Saturday morning.
One man was trapped in an upper floor.
"I pushed the dog out through the window - the fireman took him to the bottom - and I was right behind him climbing down," said Dan Chase.
Nobody was injured. Officials estimate the damage at $300,000.
