Firefighters worked to contain the blaze before extinguishing it and a subsequent fire in the nearby woods.

“The occupant was transported for injuries sustained in a fall that occurred after exiting the home,” Capt. Zachary Brackett wrote in an email.

The damage is estimated at $80,000, and the cause of the fire has not been determined.
