One seriously burned in Wolfeboro fire; investigation continues
WOLFEBORO - The New Hampshire State Fire Marshal's office and the Wolfeboro Fire Dept. are investigating a fire that broke out at 39 Brown Road on Friday morning.
The fire department said they were toned at 4:55 a.m. to a report of structure fire.
Everyone got out safely, thanks to working smoke detectors and barking pets, officials said.
One woman was reportedly seriously burned while attempting to rescue pets from the home.
A man who lived at the home also received minor injuries while attempting to fight the fire and helping the other occupant to safety, fire officials said.
Both were transported to the hospital for treatment. A neighbor told NH1 the woman was flown via medical helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock; and that one of the family's dogs had fled the scene at first but later returned and was rescued by firefighters.
The blaze was finally brought under control at 5:39 a.m.
The investigation is ongoing.
