MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — At least 25 residents in Manchester are displaced after a major house fire caught onto several surrounding buildings and cars.

"Heavy fire, heavy smoke," said Manchester Fire Chief Dan Goonan. "Two triple-deckers... we also some damage to the two-family [home] next to it, there's also at least a 6-family behind it with significant damage, maybe two of those... there's quite a few building involved."

The three alarm-fire broke out at a home on Spruce Street on Friday afternoon. Nearly 100 firefighters, including from surrounding towns, worked to knock down the flames. The Manchester Fire Department asked that everyone continue to practice social distancing, allowing the firefighters to get to work.

No residents or firefighters were injured. However, more than two-dozen Manchester residents have now been displaced during the coronavirus pandemic.
