Brockton: One Hospitalized Following Early Morning Fire

Crews were called to the scene of an early morning fire in Brockton.

Deputy Fire Chief Brian Nardelli tells WATD News the fire took place at 11 Field St. shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday 


That man was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton with non-life threatening injuries.

Nardelli says they were able to get the fire under control pretty quickly. 


Nardelli says the cause of the fire appears to be an overheated extension cord and damage is estimated to be around $75,000.
