UPDATE: 3-story NH home mostly uninhabitable after fire; chief says $75,000 of damage
MANCHESTER — Manchester Fire Department responded to 44 Notre Dame Ave. on Friday morning for a one-alarm fire.
Firefighters on scene determined the fire initially came from the second floor of the three-story wood framed home, Manchester Fire Chief Dan Goonan said.
Crews quickly put out the flames on the second floor and checked for extension, which they found on the third floor. Utilities were cut off from the home accordingly and no further extension occurred, Goonan said.
The school resource center at West High School reported the incident because the home is just adjacent to the school.
The home is mostly uninhabitable, other than the first floor, which sustained minor water damage, Goonan said. Goonan estimated about $75,000 worth of damage to the home.
No injuries have been reported.
