Brockton firefighters on Tuesday morning rescued a woman and three children from the third floor of a home that caught fire, officials said.
Via Twitter around 9:30 a.m., Brockton firefighters confirmed the two-alarm blaze at 574 Warren Ave., a three-story wood frame residence.
Minutes later, fire officials tweeted that rescues were “being made from the third floor.”
“Four people rescued over ladders, all companies working,” the department tweeted in another follow-up message.
Brockton Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Galligan said the woman and three children who were rescued were evaluated by EMS at the scene and released. One firefighter was taken to the hospital with a minor hand injury, he said.
The fire started in the basement and the woman and three children were unable to get out on their own, he said.
“The stairways and the hallways were full of smoke,” Galligan
