Fire Drives Residents From Multi-Family Home
(MANCHESTER,Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Residents of a multi-family home at 39 Cottage Street in Manchester were forced from their homes Friday evening by a 2 alarm fire which extensively damaged the second floor and caused moderate damage to the first and third floors.
Connecticut Light and Power shut off power to the entire street as firefighters battled the flames because power lines run very close to the home.
