    One firefighter was injured battling the blaze. No other injuries were reported. 

    Neighbor Richard Robidoux helped guide firefighters to the blaze.

    "The house is tucked behind other houses, so it’s hard to know where the driveway actually was," he said.

    Robidoux said there was a barn on the property before there was ever a home. That barn burned to the ground, he said.

    Aerial footage from NBC10 Boston’s Sky Ranger helicopter captured several units responding to the fire. Extensive damage could be seen on the roof of the home.

    The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
