Manchester, NH - Manchester Fire and AMR ambulance were dispatched to 38 Flint Street at 1:57 p.m. for a reported building fire on April 6, 2023.

While en route responders were advised there was one person still in the single-family residence. The first arriving engine and truck reported smoke showing from the house, and crews made entry into the house.

When crews attempted to make entry they were unable to gain entry through the front door due to a pile storage blocking the entrance. Rescue 1 and Engine 2 entered through a secondary side entrance and were able to rescue the woman from the building. The woman was assisted to a waiting stretcher and was brought away from the building.

The woman was evaluated and appeared to have smoke inhalation, however, refused transport to the hospital.

The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters, and smoke was removed from the house.

Flint Street was closed for an extended time while crews remained at the scene. Manchester Police Detectives and the Manchester Fire Marshals Office are investigating the cause and origin of the fire.

Responding units included Engines 2, 3, 5, 9, 11, Trucks 1, 7, Rescue 1, Squad 1, ALS2, PIC1, Car 1, 01, 03, EMS1, K1, K5
