Frozen Air Conditioner Causes Fire at Manchester Apartment

Firefighters responded to a fire at a Manchester apartment Wednesday afternoon.

They were called to 222 South Franklin Street at the South Town Apartments around 2 pm.

Manchester Fire Chief Mike Ryan says the problem was caused by an air conditioner wall unit that froze up. He says when they arrived, the fire had already been put out by a fire extinguisher, but the unit was still smoking.

No major damage was reported.
