Woman found dead following mobile home fire in Nashua
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A woman has died of smoke inhalation following a mobile home fire in Nashua, firefighters said Wednesday.
When firefighters arrived about 1:30 a.m., they said the closest hydrant was frozen because of the bitter cold, WMUR-TV reported. They were eventually able to get the water flowing.
“The building was completely involved in fire,” Deputy Fire Chief Glen Macdonald said. “It was obvious there was no way that anybody was going to survive in the fire. We discovered that there is a fatality.”
The woman was identified as Lorraine Malignaggi, 79, of Nashua. The cause of death was smoke inhalation and the manner of death was accidental, authorities said.
The exact cause of the fire was under investigation.
