Main Street Fire

Two Brockton firefighters injured

By Tim Grace, Enterprise staff writer

BROCKTON — One end of a strip mall was gutted and two firefighters were hurt fighting a stubborn Main Street blaze Saturday morning.

At 3:33 a.m., firefighters were called in to investigate heavy smoke pouring out of an electronics store at 706 Main St.

Fire Deputy Chief Edward Mack said the fire had probably been burning in the back of the brick and concrete block building for some time before firefighters arrived. Firefighters were slowed further by the metal security gate blocking the building's entrance.

Eventually, firefighters were able to rip the gate down and douse the flames.

But by then, the fire had already caused the collapse of the building's roof. Two suffered cuts to their hands that required treatment at the scene.

Damage to the building was estimated at $80,000.
