Crews responded for a building fire on Center Street in West Bridgewater (MA). Companies arrived to heavy fire and smoke showing from a two-story farm house. A second alarm was struck, bringing in mutual aid companies. Crews began an interior attack, and hit the fire on the B side, but the fire was too far ahead of them. The fire spread quickly throughout the occupied dwelling. Companies moved to a defensive posture and additional companies were called. Mutual aid came from from Bridgewater, Easton, East Bridgewater, Halifax, Raynham and Whitman; Hanson covered. Ambulances came from Brockton and Bridgewater; and the Department of Fire Services Rehab 6 responded. At least one firefighter was transported with minor injuries. The house was a total loss.
