Five-Alarm Fire Ravages Brockton (MA) Warehouse

A Brockton (MA) warehouse will be torn down after it was ravaged by a five-alarm fire, which caused $500,000 in damage, reports The Boston Globe.

The warehouse on Montello Street caught fire just before 10 p.m. Monday, said Brockton Fire Chief Richard Francis.

The warehouse, which was one block wide, was mainly a lumber yard but also housed other shops, including one for car repairs and one for welding. All the businesses were displaced.

The warehouse did not have sprinklers, but it did have smoke alarms that went off.

One firefighter was transported to a local hospital after straining his back. There were no other injuries.

The building was damaged so extensively it will have to be torn down.
