AMHERST, N.H. (AP) — An explosion happened at an Amherst house that was under construction, causing a contractor to suffer burn injuries to his arms, New Hampshire fire investigators said Friday.

Firefighters responded to the house near Baboosic Lake shortly before 9:30 a.m. and found smoke and fire coming from the building, New Hampshire Assistant State Fire Marshal Maxim Schultz and Amherst Fire Chief Matthew Conley said in a news release.

There were contractors working at the house at the time of the explosion, the investigators said. The injured contractor was being treated at a Boston area hospital, where he is listed as being in stable condition.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation.

Eight communities assisted in putting out the fire and providing station coverage.
