Three firefighters were hurt while battling a fire in Claremont, New Hampshire on Sunday.

Claremont Fire Chief Rick Bergeron says one firefighter was airlifted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston for serious burns. A second firefighter was being treated at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, Vermont, and a third was treated and released for a hand injury.

Crews were responding to a fire on Cherry Hill after receiving a report that a chicken coop was on fire—that fire quickly spread to the house.

The house has extensive damage, according to fire officials. Everyone inside the home made it out safe.

The New Hampshire State Fire Marshal’s office has been called in to investigate.
