MANCHESTER — A man suffered chest pains and needed to be hospitalized when he returned to his apartment to retrieve items after a fire Saturday afternoon.
The man, whose name wasn't released, was taken to Elliot Hospital, according to District Fire Chief Mike Gamache.
The two-alarm fire displaced six families, or an estimated 25 people, from the apartment building at 353 Spruce St., at the corner of Wilson Street, he said.
One man escaped with his three kids and a dog from the burning three-story building just before 1 p.m. He later learned his three cats and two turtles were found alive.
The building houses Ande's Buy & Sell Everything Outlet and two other stores on the first floor.
