(CNN) -- Two firefighters, several construction workers and residents of a condominium complex that caught fire Friday in southeastern Massachusetts were taken to a hospital, said a Norfolk Fire and Police dispatcher.

Helicopters carried three of the injured to hospitals, said dispatcher Joe Castellano.

The fire was "under control" at 3 p.m., more than two hours after the explosion in the building, which was under construction, he said.
