One Person Dead In Springfield High Rise Fire

A 74-year-old woman was found dead after Springfield firefighters battled a blaze in her 10th-floor apartment at a high-rise complex.


The call to the Capitol Plaza apartments at 12th and Adams came in just before 5:30pm Monday.  Firefighters arrived to see flames coming from the window of the 10th-floor apartment. The blaze was contained to that single residence, but other apartments sustained smoke and water damage.  At least 8 residents were displaced overnight and are receiving assistance from the Red Cross.


The cause of the fire is still under investigation, as is the exact cause of the victim's death.
