MANCHESTER - Just days ahead of Christmas, more than 50 people were left without a place to live after a devastating 3-alarm fire tore through a Log Street condominium complex early Sunday morning.
Fire officials said the three-story building suffered about $750,000 damage. Nobody who lived at the complex was injured, but at least one pet perished in the fire.
Crews arrived on scene around 3:30 a.m. and quickly tried to knock down flames, while other firefighters searched the building for people still inside. Three people were helped get to safety through a window.
"The hallway was smoke, you couldn't even see in front of you," said Joyelle Johnson, who lives on the bottom floor.
Johnson went back into her condominium Sunday afternoon, trying to recover any items that didn't suffer extensive damage.
"It's eerie because it's all boarded up inside. You can't see when you go in, you have to use a flashlight," Johnson said. "There's dripping grey and sooty water marks, and soot all over the floor."
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
The building is owned by Evergreen Property Management.
A cause remains under investigation.
