BROCKTON, MA - Around 12:15 P.M. on the afternoon of Monday, April 5th, the Brockton Fire Department responded to Master Box 7463 for 2 Beaumont Avenue at the Brockton Health Center. Following the master box, a call was received reporting a possible fire on floor-3. Engine-4, Engine-7, Squad-A, Ladder-4 and Car-56 responded.

Companies arrived to find nothing showing from the four-story brick nursing facility. Once inside companies found a fire in an outlet on floor-2 that had extended to the wall. Crews encountered smoke on floors two, three and four. Firefighters worked to locate and knock down the fire, while other firefighters moved and evacuated residents of the building.

Car-56 later requested an additional ladder to the scene, bringing in Ladder-1. EMS was then requested, bringing several Brewster EMS units to the scene for stand-by and rehab. Crews knocked down the fire quickly. A wiring inspector was also requested to the scene, as the fire was believed to have originated in an outlet on the second floor.
