NORTHWOOD, N.H. (AP) — Fire has destroyed a Masonic lodge in Northwood.

Firefighters battled the massive fire on Saturday night. They tell WMUR-TV that when they arrived, the flames were spreading rapidly through the three-story building.

A lack of hydrants in the area made it difficult to slow down the fire.

As many as nine fire departments responded to the four-alarm blaze.

One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion. No other injuries were reported.
