ANDOVER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire fire officials say a blaze destroyed an unoccupied dormitory and several outbuildings at Proctor Academy in Andover.

WMUR-TV says (https://bit.ly/292qVrr ) that the first report came in at 2 p.m. Saturday and soon went to three alarms.

Andover fire officials say that when they arrived at the scene, the dormitory and barn were fully involved and the fire was moving toward a shed.

Authorities say poor hydrants near the dorm and a metal roof hindered firefighting efforts.

One firefighter was overcome by the heat and sent to the hospital for treatment.

Officials say the students are on summer break and the dorm parents who live at the house were not home at the time of the fire.

Fire Chief Rene Lefebvre says the buildings are “a total loss.”
