(CNN) – Explosions and fires that rocked nearly 40 homes and businesses in three Massachusetts towns on Thursday may have resulted from an issue with gas service, officials said.

Suspected explosions have set structures on fire across dozens of blocks and forced evacuations in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, Massachusetts State Police said.

Lawrence General Hospital received three patients in unknown condition, according to spokeswoman Jill Halsey.

Andover officials said a firefighter was among three people injured.
