BROOKFIELD — The Brookfield Fire Department said it responded to a large structure fire Friday morning near Bradee and Shore Line.
The Waukesha County 911 Communications Center received several calls around 4 a.m. about an explosion and fire in the area.
The assistant fire chief said the fire started on the second floor near the attic. No one was injured but two dogs had to be rescued from the home.
One neighbor tells TMJ4 the community is full of older homes that are rich with history, and he says he's grateful no one was hurt.
“You never want to see it happen anywhere. But it was certainly kind of a shock this morning in a quiet little community here to see all of this action, to say the least," said neighbor Brandon Tschacher.
Officials said the fire didn't spread to any other house, and it was contained within 45 minutes.
About 15 different agencies responded to the area, and there was a water main break but officials said it didn't affect the fire department's response.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
