There was a fire in a Brookfield strip mall last night. The fire was reported on Federal Road near Brookfield Technology Center around 8:45pm. Federal Road was closed for about two hours while firefighters extinguished the blaze. Flames were reported in the attic of a strip mall building and the roof was opened to let out smoke.
Crews encountered heavy fire conditions in the rear of the 1.5 story wood frame commercial structure. No injuries were reported.
Within half an hour the bulk of the fire was knocked down and crews started the overhaul process. The fire marshal responded and will investigate the cause.
