Manchester Fire, police, and AMR responded to several reports of a building fire on Biron Street on February 15, 2024, at 2:04 p.m.

Simultaneously, someone stopped at the Goffstown Fire Station, a short distance away, and reported the fire.

Firefighters responding could see smoke from miles away and added additional apparatus to the call.

Goffstown Fire sent an engine due to the report they received that the residence is close to the town line.

Goffstown firefighters stretched a hose line, and Manchester arrived, stretched lines, and set up the water supply.

The fire appeared to originate in the front of the residence; the front porch collapsed, and the fire quickly spread throughout the house. Crews were initially hampered by a live electrical line that disconnected from the house and was in the driveway.

Firefighters knocked down the fire and searched the house for occupants. A cat was located on the second floor and brought to a safe location where firefighters provided oxygen and was able to save the cat that the owner says is 17 years old.

The fire was brought under control at 2:49 p.m., according to Battalion Chief Josh Guay. No firefighters or civilians were injured; one cat was rescued, and one cat perished in the fire.

The fire is under investigation by Manchester Fire; there is no indication of anything suspicious.
