One of the firefighters suffered heat-related injuries

Two firefighters were injured as they battled a 3-alarm blaze Sunday on a sweltering day in Nashua, New Hampshire.

The fire department says one firefighter had neck and back injuries, while the other was suffering from heat-related injuries.

Temperatures soared into the 90s across New England Sunday, forcing officials to strike a third alarm for man power.

Fire officials received a call around 4:30 p.m. for a fire at 76 Pike Street. The fire was through the roof of the single family home upon arrival. The home's addition caught fire, as well as the original structure, and the flames spread to the attic.

Access to the home was difficult because it was set far back from the road, according to the fire department.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
