Neighbors attempted to rescue tenant from Manchester blaze
She called 9-1-1 while her husband ran up the outside stairs and went into the third-floor hallway. But he said the smoke - "so thick, so black and acrid" - held him back. He screamed in vain.
The Toccis, however, couldn't save their neighbor.
Sullivan, 31, had moved into his apartment at 169 Joliette St. around New Year's Day, according to the Toccis. Sullivan was a drummer in a band, Mr. Tocci said.
The Toccis, married in August, returned Saturday to the second-floor apartment where they hosted family for Thanksgiving.
He rented the place last February, and his wife moved in last August. Now they are staying with family for the time being.
"It's still undetermined, and it's still under investigation," said District Fire Chief Al Poulin.
Other tenants included a woman who lived on the second floor for more than 20 years and her daughter and two grandchildren who lived in a first-floor apartment, according to the Toccis.
In the past two days, he said, he had seen "hundreds of cars just taking a look and taking pictures."
