All Manchester Fire Companies were dispatched to a home on Laketree Court for a reported house fire. On arrival of the first engine, the 2-1/2 story house was already fully involved. A water supply was immediately established and a tower ladder and handlines were put into operation. The structure was severely compromised which limited a search. In the following days investigators and crews returned to the scene to determine a cause and located the body of the lone occupant.
