My 24 year old daughter took that photo and many others that scary night. The fire spread rapidly from one ond of the roofline to the other in about 4 minutes. The firefighters were there in record time and got it under control within 25 minutes. THEY WERE AMAZING!!!
I am truly sorry for my neighbors loss and hope that the community will rally around them to help.

Fire usually spreads quickly, moron. Hopefully the Manchester FD got there before Hampstead, otherwise it would have been micromanaged to the ground!

Who exactly are you bashing here? Lets look at who builds these houses so fast just to make a buck that they cut corners here and there.I know because I've seen it.

Micromanaged by talking it out, yelling and screaming by the Chief.
