BOSTON (CBS) — Seven people were displaced and one firefighter was hurt battling a three-alarm house fire in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood late Saturday morning.

Firefighters were called to the blaze at the Ellis Street home shortly after 11:30 a.m. They saw smoke and fire in back of the two-family house when they arrived, according to the Boston Fire Twitter account.

The fire managed to spread into the walls, the second floor and the attic, fire officials say. Firefighters were able to quickly put out the blaze.

The hurt firefighter was treated and taken to a local hospital after suffering non-life threatening injuries. No civilians were injured.

Five adults and two children were displaced, and the American Red Cross was called in to help them.

Boston’s fire chief estimates $350,000 in damage, and fire investigators are trying to determine the cause and origin.

No additional information was immediately available.
