Manchester (NH) Fire Dispatch received a call reporting a building fire on Bartlett Street. The initial caller reported they could not self-evacuate and they were trapped on the third floor. The caller disconnected from the dispatchers. Additional calls came in reporting the adjacent building was also on fire. First-arriving firefighters reported smoke showing from the roof and entered the building to begin evacuations. All occupants were safely out of the building and firefighters located the fire on the third floor and quickly knocked it down. Truck 6 and Truck 1 (labeled T4 on spare in photo) worked on opening up the roof to ensure the fire was fully extinguished. The American Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the residents from three units in finding alternative living spaces.
