HYANNIS, Mass. — A firefighter injured his shoulder Sunday night while working to put out a two-alarm fire at a Hyannis duplex home.

Hyannis Fire Captain Nathan Coughlin said the home had a wooden frame and that smoke was coming from inside the walls.

“We had to open up quite a bit of the walls and ceiling to prevent [the fire] from running on us and getting into the attic.”

The firefighter was taken to a hospital.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
