An inferno has displaced two resettled families in Manchester (NH) Sunday morning at 2 a.m.
The mishap has victimized some 30 individuals including resettled Bhutanese from two apartments rented by Dilli Ram Gazmere and Karna Bahadur Gurung.
“When police officials knocked our doors, we knew that it was an emergency – – we came to know our apartment was under fire,” one of the fire victims, Tara Gazmere, told Bhutan News Service.
According to Gazmere, all of his family members left the apartment without even collecting the basic materials. “We even didn’t collect our cloths or valuable items.”
The Red Cross has shifted the Gazmere family to Hotel Comfort Inn for temporary settlement, while the Gurung family has been moved to one of their relatives’ apartment.
Kamal Basnet, one of the executive members of the Bhutanese Community of New Hempshire, said the organization would extend all possible supports to the displaced Bhutanese.
Cause of the mishap was being investigated by police while filing this news.
