MANCHESTER, NH — A two-alarm fire heavily damaged a single-family home early Saturday morning on Kearney Street.

Fire crews arrived to 195 Kearney Street at about 12:45 a.m. to find  heavy fire coming from the attic of the ranch-style home. Fire had breached the roof prior to arrival of the fire department.

One firefighter suffered a facial injury from falling debris. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

All family members got out of the house safely before crews arrived and were evaluated for smoke inhalation, and advise firefighters a dog was still inside the home. Firefighters searched extensively for the dog, which was eventually found and treated at the scene before being taken to an emergency vet’s office.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. The damage is estimated at $100,000.
