Officials find lady's-slipper flower alone, unharmed in middle of Manchester brush fire


MANCHESTER - Fire officials got a nice surprise in the middle of a brush fire Wednesday afternoon.

As they battled the fire (which they say was started when a man tried to burn files in the middle of the woods), a single plant was seen unharmed in the middle of the flames.

A lady's-slipper - a rare plant in the Granite State according to an official.

They're protected as "special concern" under the Native Plant Protection Act. And protected in states across the country. (But they're a little more common in New Hampshire than the fire official thought.)

Ah nature.
