CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — Three firefighters were hurt while battling a blaze at a home in Claremont and one was airlifted to a hospital in Boston with what fire officials described as significant burns.

Claremont Fire Captain Bryan Burr says that the firefighter with “significant burns” was airlifted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. A second firefighter was being treated at Fletcher Allen Health Care Hospital in Burlington, Vt., and a third was treated and released.

Burr says that the home has extensive damage, but that all of the occupants got out safely.

He says the fire was reported shortly after 6 p.m. and was placed under control at 7:34 p.m.
