TV Sparks, Dog Dies in Manchester Fire

A television fire killed a dog in Manchester and left a dozen people homeless Monday morning. 

Fire started at 150-152 Oak St., a three-family house, around 5:30 a.m.  Within less than 10 minutes, the fire escalated to a three-alarm blaze that brought firefighters from five departments. It took almost two hours for crews to get the fire under control.

Smoke detectors woke a resident of the first floor, who saw a fire on top of the television and tried to put it out.  A 19-year-old who lives in the apartment called 911. Fire spread to the attic and partially collapsed the roof, according to Manchester Fire EMS.  

A woman who lived on the first floor cut her foot on glass, but no one else was hurt. 

The fire marshal is investigating the cause.
