Manchester, NH - On March 10, 2023, Manchester Fire received multiple calls for a garage fire at 337 Maple Street Friday at about 3:20 p.m.
The first companies to arrive at 3:24 found smoke showing from a 6-bay residential garage with a large 1 1/2-story residential home and carriage house.
Companies quickly began a fire attack with extensive forcible entry to the row of garage bays, while the home was searched for occupants and checked for fire extension.
