By Tim Grace, Enterprise staff writer

BROCKTON — A mother and her four children were burned out of their Earley Street home Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters said two of the children were inside when about 4:30 p.m. a fire started in a crawl space under the ranch-style house at 49 Earley St. Both children got out of the house on their own without injury.

Deputy Chief Robert Manning said two basement bedrooms where engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

"They were confronted with a large volume of fire in the basement," he said.

Firefighters kept the flames from spreading further and had the fire extinguished in about 30 minutes, Manning said.

Damage to the house, which the family had been renting, was severe.

"Those two rooms were burned and the upstairs of the house suffered extensive smoke and heat damage," Manning said.

He estimating the value of property lost at about $100,000.

The family planned to stay with relatives Thursday night.
