WATCH: Couple rushes to help evacuate building after fire consumes Manchester building


MANCHESTER - Early Wednesday morning a large cloud of smoke was spotted coming from a building at 624 Rimmon Street.

Manchester Patrol Officer David Labbe was patrolling when he observed the fire. Described as good Samaritans, Jose and Brenda Camacho were driving down Bremer St. in Manchester when they said they noticed a fire on the the third floor porch of the building.

"I stopped our car and told my husband to run up and pound on the tenants doors to alert the tenants of the fire which was getting bigger by the minute," said Brenda Camacho. "I then dialed 911 and alerted them of the fire."

Brenda repeatedly honked her car horn to alert the tenants and then both she and her husband continued to frantically bang on all and any doors of this building - still trying to warn the tenants of the fire.

Brenda eventually started to film the fire on her smart phone.

"I decided 'oh gosh' I have to try to get some of this on camera," said Brenda Camacho. "So I turned my cell phone cam."

Raji Gupta, another samaritan who drove past the fire, aided the Camacho's and Officer Labbe.

The six unit building sustained heavy fire damage. Fortunately, all residents were safely evacuated and unharmed, which is most likely the direct result of the action of both Offier Labbe and the Good Samaritan.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
