New Hampshire Apartment Fire Displaces 100

Manchester investigators were able to pinpoint the cause of the fire to a coffeepot left on a stove.


Red Cross officials said 25 other organizations in the community such as the Salvation Army and the Food Bank are helping the fire victims. Property management companies with open units are also helping them find new apartments.

"Our biggest challenge at this time is funding," said Lisa Michaud of the Red Cross. "We're a nonprofit, and we are always asking for the generosity of the community. We are always seeking donations."

Red Cross officials have asked anyone that would like to donate to visit their Web site redcrossmanchester.org.
