MANCHESTER - Authorities identified the man rescued Saturday from a burning Front Street apartment building as 48-year-old Thomas Belliveau.
Firefighters pulled an unconscious Belliveau out of his burning first floor apartment at 298 Front St. Saturday night just before midnight.
He was revived and then airlifted to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where he was listed in good condition Tuesday afternoon. A dozen people were left homeless by the blaze, reported about 11:50 p.m. Saturday. Fire officials said it started because a pan of oil was left on a hot stove in a first floor kitchen.
Fire officials said the balloon framing in the 130-year-old building allowed flames to travel quickly from the first to the third floor. Damage was estimated at $140,000.
Twelve people, including four children, were displaced because of the heavy damage.
