HUDSON, MASS. (WHDH) - A firefighter was hospitalized after falling through the floor while battling a massive house fire in Hudson, New Hampshire on Thursday.
Emergency crews responding to a reported fire at a two-family home on Greeley Street around 1:42 p.m. found flames shooting out of the home.
SKY7HD footage showed smoke pouring out of the home’s roof, most of which was destroyed by the flames.
One firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene and another firefighter was taken to the hospital after falling through the first floor into the basement, according to Hudson fire officials.
All nine residents of the home were able to get out safely, firefighters said. Another firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
Debra Devost says she had just gotten out of the shower when she smelled smoke coming from her neighbor’s home.
“I went looking around and it’s nothing in my home. So I open the basement door and I could see a little bit of smoke, as I said on the ceiling part when I looked down the stairs,” she said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
No additional information was immediately available.
