Sidney Cooper was at the store when his home at 228 Spring St. caught fire.

He arrived home to find the firefighters battling a blaze that had spread to the roof from his second-floor kitchen.

“It wasn’t the best feeling,” Cooper said.

Cooper owns the home and lives on the second floor with his wife, Cheryl, and his three children. No one was home at the time of the fire, and the first floor of the two-family home was vacant.

A neighbor called the Fire Department about 11:45 a.m., reporting smoke was coming from the house. The Fire Department did not know which neighbor had made the call, Brockton Deputy Fire Chief Mark Baker said.

The fire started in the kitchen and spread to the attic. Firefighters had to knock a hole in the roof to fight the fire. They extended a ladder from one of the trucks to the roof.

Baker estimated the fire caused $50,000 in damage.

Cooper said he was still processing the event Thursday afternoon.

“We just have to wait,” he said. “I haven’t got my head around it yet.”

Squad A, Engine 4, Engine 7, Ladder 1 and Tower 1 responded to the call.
