Auna Drive Fire

Faulty wiring blamed in Brockton fire


By Maria Papadopoulos, Enterprise staff writer

BROCKTON— A city family was displaced after an electrical fire in their kitchen significantly damaged their Auna Drive home, fire officials said.

No injuries were reported. No one was home when the fire broke out, officials said.

Police and fire officials responded to 29 Auna Drive at 2:30 p.m. Sunday after receiving a 911 emergency call from neighbors reporting a fire on the first floor of the multi-family building.

When firefighters arrived, they had to force the door open and search the apartment since no one was home, Fire Deputy Chief Timothy Murphy said Sunday.

Firefighters smelled smoke and “when they entered the hallway, they got to the door and could feel the heat through the door,” Murphy said.

Firefighters extinguished the flames behind that door within 10 minutes, Murphy said.

Murphy estimated $10,000 in damages to the apartment, whose kitchen was destroyed, he said.

An investigation found faulty wiring near the stove area caused the fire, he said.

Squad A, Ladder 1, and engine companies 2 and 5 responded to the scene, as did Lt. Edward Williams of the city's Fire Prevention Bureau.
