Lake St. building fills with smoke, fire discovered hidden in wall partition


MANCHESTER - A fire discovered in a partition between the first and second floors at a Lake Street building filled several apartments with smoke until firefighters were able to locate the flames with a thermal imaging camera.

Firefighters say the call came in just after 10 p.m. at 213 Lake St. Once the fire was located, they say it was quickly extinguished. Power was restored to all the apartments except where the fire had been located. No one was injured, but three people from the affected apartment were put up elsewhere by the landlord.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. The damage was estimated at about $10,000.
