Firefighters in New Hampshire rescued two people trapped in a windowless bathroom during a house fire.

Firefighters in Nashua said they stayed in phone contact with the residents on Tuesday night. Several companies worked together to find the man and woman inside. Both were treated by an ambulance crew and taken to a hospital, where they were listed in satisfactory condition.

Firefighters said the bulk of the fire was extinguished within 40 minutes, but another hour was spent putting out multiple hot spots in many concealed spaces in the building’s framing.

About 10 people were displaced.

Firefighters have not determined the cause of the fire.
