A man was hospitalized following a massive 3-alarm fire in Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood Friday afternoon.
Boston fire officials say firefighters were alerted to the blaze on 36 Lexington St. just after noon. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they saw flames shooting from the rear of a multi-family home. The fire has since been knocked down, but is still smoky.
A man who lived at the address was treated by Boston EMS responders and taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital. He's currently in critical condition.
A firefighter was also treated for exhaustion.
In all, four adults and two children lost their home. Boston fire officials say they're staying with family and friends.
Sky Ranger footage showed firefighters putting out flames on the roof of a heavily damaged two-story residential building.
Fire officials estimate the damage at $400,000.
It's unclear how this fire started.
The investigation is ongoing.
