At 5:45 am, the Brockton Fire Alarm office received several calls reporting a house fire with occupants trapped at 779 Montello Street in the Campello section of the city.

First arriving companies found heavy fire showing from a 3- story wood frame tenement with several people jumping out the 2nd floor windows. Lt. Scott Sweet of Engine 2 requested a second alarm.

Deputy Chief Robert Manning arrived shortly after and assumed command. Members of Tower 2, while searching the 3rd floor, found 4 people trapped in a rear bathroom.

With heavy smoke and high heat, Tower 2 crew removed these people via ground ladders and the bucket from Tower 2. CPR was used on two of the victims while being lowered in the bucket. As the second alarm companies arrived an interior attack was under way with 2 1/2" lines on all floors.

Chief of Department Kenneth Gilligan arrived and assumed command and ordered a third alarm at 6:11 am. A fourth alarm for relief purposes was transmitted a 6:49 am.
