On 8/2/2022, the Manchester (NH) Fire Department was dispatched for a reported fire on Beech Street, just a few blocks from the central fire station. Truck 1 was first-due and reported a fire in the rear of a mutli-story, OMD, with power lines down and fire running up the exterior siding. A second alarm was ordered soon thereafter and a third alarm was also struck, bringing all but one company in the city to the scene. Companies made a trench cut in an attempt to keep the fire from spreading further in the cockloft. About 25 minutes into the fire, crews were evacuated from the building and a defensive attack was made. Multiple handlines and four ladder pipes operated at the scene. Due to the size of the response, mutual aid from around the area covered Manchester stations until mid-afternoon when the fire was under control. The temperature at the time of this fire was just over 90 degrees.
