UPDATE: Investigation Ongoing Into Three-House Fire


The Springfield Fire Department is investigating whether a car fire earlier this morning may be linked to an early morning blaze that destroyed three houses on 4th Street in Springfield.

 

Fire Chief Ken Fustin says that a car fire on 7th street was reported a few hours before the blaze on 4th street broke out, but investigations have yet to find a connection.

 

The first house on 4th street collapsed shortly after firefighters arrived at the scene just after 3:30 this morning.

 

Nine people were displaced from surrounding homes.

 

The other two homes involved in the fire were also a total loss.

 

Fustin says that there are no reports of injuries at this time and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
