Man killed in Manchester, N.H., blaze

A fire early Friday in Manchester, N.H., left one man dead, according to Manchester fire officials.

The victim was found in an apartment on the top floor of the three-story building, Gamache said, adding the blaze possibly started in that apartment. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, Gamache said.

Firefighters are still looking for the victim’s girlfriend, Manchester Fire Chief James Burkush told WMUR-TV, but do not believe she was in the building at the time of the fire.

One firefighter was taken to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester with non-life threatening injuries, Gamache said.
