Fire that killed family of 4 in Manchester ruled accidental, started by smoking materials


MANCHESTER - Fire marshals believe that discarded smoking materials igniting upholstery caused a four-alarm fire which took the lives of four people on June 6.

The victims, Joshua Harrison, 33, Ailene Moody, 39, Joshua Harrison, 10, Jay Michael Garon, 8, all died from smoke inhalation, according to the Chief Medical Examiner's office.

The upholstery smoldered on the second story for an hour and a half before igniting.

Investigators found no evidence to suggest the fire was deliberate.

With more information, contact Investigator Sean Plumer, or District Chief Danielle Cole at (603) 223-4289 or to the Manchester Fire Department – Deputy Fire Marshal John Reese at (603) 669-2256.
