A neighbor says he is praying for the injured man who lives next door.
"I looked outside my window and I saw smoke, I saw the flames, the firetruck. The flames were pretty high," the neighbor told NBC10 Boston. "Very sad, especially on a day like today, on Christmas. It's horrible."
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the state fire marshal.
