Four people have died in a house fire in Springfield, according to city fire chief Ken Fustin.
The blaze was reported shortly before midnight Thursday night, and the home at 901 N. 9th Street was fully involved when firefighters arrived. One woman had escaped the flames by crawling out a second-story window onto a roof, where she was rescued by firefighters.
But four others in the home... all believed to be adults... died. There is no word yet on the cause of that fire or on the identity of the victims. [Stay with 970 WMAY for updates throughout the day.]
