A person died in a fire that burned a building in Manchester, New Hampshire, Saturday while several more people were rescued, officials said. A firefighter was burned and had to be flown to Boston for treatment, Manchester Fire Chief Andy Parent said. Another person was also taken by helicopter to a Boston hospital for medical treatment. The heavy fire, raging on three floors of an apartment building on Dutton Street, was reported about 6:10 p.m., Parent said. Five people were rescued by a ladder on the third floor of the building -- there were multiple people hanging out of windows on that floor -- and another person was rescued from a second-floor porch. Among those saved was a baby. Video shows a firefighter clutching the baby tightly, descending down a ladder to safety.
