BARNSTEAD — One man was seriously burned in a 3-alarm fire that destroyed a home, officials said.
More than 200 firefighters from several area towns responded to a home on Oxbow Road Monday night. Neighbors called 911 just after 11 p.m., officials said.
The home was fully involved and flames were shooting 50 to 60 feet into the air, said Captain Brian Cottrell.
The only person that was in the home was found on the front lawn with serious burns. He was taken to an area hospital. There is no word on his condition.
Crews ran into two major issues attempting to battle the flames. Downed power lines were in the path of trucks and because of the drought the nearest adequate water source was 6 miles away.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office is leading the investigation. Officials said the home is completely destroyed.
