Blaze destroys Cumberland house

CUMBERLAND – A Diamond Hill Road couple just barely escaped a fast-moving fire in their home Monday night that sadly claimed the lives of their two dogs and a cat, according to firefighters.
David and Marianne Alger had been asleep in the upper level of their two-story home just before 11:15 p.m. when they woke to find the attached downstairs family room on fire, North Cumberland Fire Chief Brian Jackvony said Tuesday.
