NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A fire that swept through a Nashua, New Hampshire multi-family home left 10 residents homeless and two dogs dead.
Nashua fire officials say four adults and two children were evaluated at the scene but were not taken to the hospital.
Authorities say the fire began at about 1:30 Thursday afternoon in the 2-1/2-story wood frame house.
